Violence against women

foreplay. Altl it is not 

something he may care to admit to 
himself, it will then become clear 
when his complaint is: After all this 
work, I have to have intercourse 

And while men are cast into 
roles, women are being depicted 
throughout the media as the object 
>f violence, tied up and tortured by 
faceless men. (Playboy June, 77). 
The underlying myth is that the 
woman actually enjoys playing the 
submissive role and receiving the 
brunt of another's frustration. 
There are some women working to 
explode this myth. They have 
formed an organization called 
Women against Violence against 
Women (WAVAW). They are 
Tying to force the media, who are 
exploiting this false image, to find 
other means to sell their wares. The 
group has already targeted the 
Rolling Stones and the Ohio Players 
for graphic illustrations of battered 
women. WAVAW also contends 
'hat the violence is developing into 
'he New Chic' Magazines that 
cater to women have developed 
'heir own theories. For example, 
Redbook says in a recent issue! 
"Most women still link their feeling 
of feminity in one way or another to 
its male counter-part masculinity. 
The difference between size and 

forced to suffer 


sex is important to a lot of women." 
Women are breaking out of this 
mode. Francine Du Plessix Gray, 
author of the best-selling book,' 
Lovers and Tyrants said, "The 
problems come from thousands of 
years of sexist theology, which was 
aimed at protecting men from the 
awe and the discomfort our bodies 
inspire... Men have put women on a 
pedestal to protect their own 
material and psychic needs. Thus 
we are kept in our place and they 
watch us suffer." 

A battle rages on. As the slick 
advertising schemes continue to 
exploit the brutal image of women 
enjoying the violence inflicted upon 

them, more people must be 
educated to an awareness of what 
harm this is doing to ourselves and 
our children. This education must 
begin at once in our homes. It must 
spread and become a force able to 
bring enough pressure on large 
headquarters of fast-buck ad- 
vertisers in order to stop them. This 
may have to come in the form of a 
boycott, or a massive letter writing 

But ultimately, it is up to the 
individual. If you dislike something, 
speak up against it. 

You can't change the whole 
world, but you can work at pieces 
of it. 


Each spring, 30,000 students 
leave the Amherst area, and the 
town again becomes a center of 
peaceful activity in a tranquil valley. 
The students take with them the 
pressures and anxie f ies of the 
urban Amherst, leaving the rest of 
us to doze until the U-Haul trailers 
again begin to appear in late 

Unfortunately, living in Amherst 
for the summer does pose some 
problems. It is only during the 
summer months that it becomes 
apparent that Amherst houses, and 
the University encourages, an 
invidious form of second class 
citizenship. While all is peace and 
joy for those who are enrolled in 
Summer School, regular un- 
dergraduates who remain in the 
area for work or play soon discover 
that they are subject to a profound 
and pervasive discrimination. 

Consider the following. A week 
ago, any student could walk up to 
the windows at the Bursar's Office 
and cash a check. While there was 
some grumbling (the memory of 
the closing of the Student Union 
check-cashing facilities being still 
fresh in the mind) it was generally 
conceded the check-cashing on 
campus was worth a trip to 
Whitmore. This week, hjowever, 
only those with st'ekers proclaiming 
them to be amont, the Elect (those 
enrolled in Summer Session) are 
allowed to use the check-cashing 

Or even worse, consider the 
plight of a regular undergraduate 
who wants to use the tennis courts 
down by Boyden. It is not enough 
this week to have a student ID. For 
the rest of the summer it will be

Letter from S. Africa: protesters congratulated 

To the editor 

I'd like to congratulate the people 
involved in the protest over en- 
dowment funds invested in South 
Africa. It's a good cause, which I'm 
sure would be supported by many 
more people, if only they could see 
'he reality of the situation here day 
in and day out. Withdrawal of 
investments is not interference in 
South Africa's domestic affairs, just 
a refusal to participate. It must be 
made clear to South Africa that we 
cannot bear to aid, in however 
indirect a fashion, the continuation 

of such distasteful policies. 

Keep that purpose in mind ana 
don't be swayed by claims mat the 
blacks are going to be hurt, not the 
whites. That argument is a "moral 
tranquilizer" to allow the people to 
continue on the same policies, 
complacent in the knowledge that 
they're "doing the right thing." It 
also makes it easy for the same 
people to continue getting the 
shitty end of the stick. No, the 
blacks will not be hurt by the with- 
drawal of investments, but by the 

laws that prevent them from selling 
their labor freely elsewhere, by laws 
that limit their lives and restrict their 

Finally, the blacks here are not 
ignorant or apathetic. They know 
about Carter and they know about 
Young. They expect American 
pressure on South Africa. Is 
America really for freedom or is it 
just hot air?

necessary to have a special gold 
"facilities use" card to use the 
tennis courts. Summer Session 
students, of course, will be 
provided with such cards. The rest 
of us... 

It is necessary to realize that the 
University is faced with a problem. 
It charges regular students vast and 
diverse fees during the regular 
school year, entitling them to use 
the facilities of the University. If the 
University were to allow Summer 
Session students to be "free riders" 
it would be faced with cries of 
protest from every quarter. And 
yet, when Summer Session begins, 
the vast majority of undergraduates 
become unwelcome at the very 
facilities they have paid for 
throughout the year. 

The case of the tennis courts is 
particularly interesting. Throughout 
the winter months, regular un- 
dergraduates pay and pay and pay, 
through the Athletic Fee, for tennis 
courts that a«-e under two feet of 
snow. When they are finally able to 
be used, and after the pressure of 
finals is over, regular un- 
dergraduates suddenly find that 
they have been paying for nothing. 
Now, it is possible that the tennis 
courts are not funded out of the 
Athletic fee directly. If this is the 
case, then I cannot understand why 
Summer Session students should 
enjoy any special consideration in 
their use. 

Obviously, if all regular un- 
dergraduates really did go home for 
the summer there would be no 
problem. But each year an in- 
creasing number of undergraduates 
make Amherst their summer home. 
This year, especially, many un- 
dergraduates are staying in 
Amherst to take advantage of the 
summer work-study bonanza. 
Unless they can squeeze a Summer 
Session course into their schedules, 
they are going to be doomed to 
sitting on their hands while the 
Summer Session students cash 
checks, play tennis, and God knows 
what else. 

The time has come for the 
University administration to stop 
treating regular undergraduates like 
public embarrassments when June 
1 rolls around. The regular un- 
dergraduates are the ones who 
spend most of the money on 
campus. They pay taxes just like all 
the other citizens of the Com- 
monwealth. And they provide the 
University with its reason for 
existing. To cast them out on June 
1 is not only unfair: it is ungracious. 


Puryear defends research 

Provost Paul L. Puryear, cen- 
sured by both the Faculty Senate 
ana the general faculty in May over 
his controversial five-year plan, last 
*eek was forced to draw up a 
'hree page memo to faculty 
members explaining his role in 
academic research being con- 
ducted on UMass governance. 

"I regret very much that it was 
necessary to address a lengthy 
memorandum to the faculty on a 
suhiect that is normally outside the 
realm of public discussion," 
Huryear wrote. 

The memo was the result of a 
series of articles printed in the Daily 
Hampshire Gazette concerning a 
faculty Senate Rules Committee 
investigation of the research. 

Trouble arose when some faculty 
learned that Puryear was 
associated with a questionnaire 
sent out to UMass faculty by 
Juanita Clay, a Florida State 
University doctoral student. 
Puryear came to UMass last fall 
from Florida State. 

Faculty complained that Puryear 
did not publically associate himself 
with the survey, the results of 
which they thought would be used 
for finalizing the second stage of his 
long range plan, a sore spot with 
faculty since its release in the 

•newslines. . . 

The rules committee is also 
investigating complaints that 
Puryear is using public funds to 
support his research. 

Puryear defended his research in 
the memo to faculty, explaining he 
came to UMass with the condition 
he be allowed to continue his 
academic research. 

The research, both for Clay's 
doctoral thesis and a jointly- 
authored book, focuses on the 
adaptability of institutions on 
higher learning to changes in 
population, revenue structure and 
demands for research and training. 

Puryear also blasted the Gazette, 
las; week charging them with 
"biased" reporting of the issue. 

"I trust," Puryear concludes, 
"that the politicafly motivated 
attacks on my rights as a scholar 
will now cease." 

The rules committee is expected 
to give their verdict sometime this 
week, after they have had a chance 
to study the provost's 

Not mentioned by Puryear was 
the transfer of a secretary. Bertha 
L Auten, from the provost's office 
to the office of grants and con- 
tracts. Some faculty have 
speculated that the transfer is 
related to the research. Auten, on 
vacation lasi week, was unavailable 
for comment. 

Mora bucks for us? 

State legislators seem to be 
responding to the University's 
request for a higher allocation than 
Gov. Michael S. Dukakis' level- 
funding proposal allows. 

Under Dukakis' plan, the 
University would receive the same 
budget it received last year, with no 
allowances for inflation or re- 
negotiated employe contracts.

said last week the House Ways and

Summer will officially begin on 
June 21 with the passing of the 
summer solstice, where the sun's 
rays fall directly on the Tropic of 
Cancer in the northern hemisphere. 

But summer events and 
programs are beginning before the 
official kick-off date. To help you 
attune yourself to summer hap- 
penings, the Summer Collegian is 
publishing the following highlights 
of summer events. 


UMass is the only one of the five 
colleges offering summer school 
this year. The University's two 
summer sessions are only part of 
the academic programs being 
offered, however. 

The Division of Continuing 
Education is holding a series of 80 
credit-free workshops throughout 
the summer, incluiding hot air 
ballooning and tap dancing. 

The program, headed by Merilee 
Neunder, allows adults to learn in 
an informal and non-competitive 
environment. Grades are not given 
and transcripts are not required. 

The second workshop session 
begins July 11. To register, drop by 
Hills House North Records Office, 
8:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through 
Thursday, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on 
Fridays and 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on 

A Summer Skills program is also 
being offered by the Division of 
continuing Education. A complete 
listing of the workshps can be 
found in the Summer Skills Office, 

206 Hills North. 

One Summer Skills program, a 
Metircs Awareness Workshop, will 
be held at 7:30 p.m. on June 8. 
Registration for this program will be 
accepted until June 5 at the 
Continuing Education Records 

Registration for the Project Self 
Workshops will be held until June 
17. A brochure listing all the 
courses is available by calling the 
center at 545-0883. For an extra fee, 
most workshops have one credit 

summertime's most desirable 
activity-leisure. The Leisure Studies 
Dept. is sponsoring a summer 
visiting professors program of 
seven courses. 

All students are welcome. For 
more information, call Larry Klar,

Town Meeting sets marathon record 


The longest Amherst Town 
Meeting on record is now history. 

In what moderator William F. 
Field termed the hardest-working 
Town Meeting he's ever seen, the 
240- member body adjourned at 
midnight on May 24. The 68-item 
town warrant was discussed, item- 
by-item, over eight meetings, 
surpassing the old record by one. 
The sessions were spread over a 
three-week period. 

Due to a redistribution of voter 
districting, all 240 seats, instead of 
the standard 80, were up for 
election this year for the first time. 
With many new members elected, 
the 1977 version of the meeting 
proved a highly inquisitive body, 
scrutinizing nearly every article on 
the warrant. Even a normally 
rubber-stamped motion such as 
article 12, which would permit the 
town treasurer, with selectmen 
approval, "to borrow money from 
time to time in anticipation" of 
incoming taxes, was questioned. It 
eventually passed. 

Tenant- related articles 

Among the most significant 
articles on the warrant, the meeting 
easily passed article 41, which had 
been proposed by the Security 
Deposit Trust Account Task Force. 
It stipulated that security deposits 
for rented housing units must be 
deposited in a trust account held 
jointly by the landlord and tenant, 
and before release of the money is 
permitted an agreement must be 
reached on how much each party it 
to receive. The article further said 
that a landlord must attempt to 
reach a former tenant, via certified 

mail, should the tenant tail to 
collect his— her share of the deposit 
upon expiration of the lease. If no 
response is received by 60 days, the 
landlord gets to keep the entire 

The passage of the article 
overcame a 5-2 vote by the Finance 
Committee against the article. The 
committee had feared not the 
program itself but rather the cost of 
possible legal action against it. The 
selectmen favored the article, 
because "fear of a court challenge 
should not deter us from passing 
this by-law." A voice vote was all 
that was needed to pass the article. 

Three other articles pertinent to 
apartment-dwellers, all proposed by 
the Amherst Tenants Association, 
were on the warrant, with one 
passing and the other two failing. 

Article 43, calling for a system of 
rent control for the town, was 
defeated by the meeting. Both the 
Finance Committee and, 
unanimously, the Board of 
Selectmen, had voted to oppose 
the article. Selectman chairperson 
Nancy Eddy voiced the board's 
opinion that they were not con- 
vinced the article would "serve its 
stated purpose", and that the board 
believed rent control would not 
ease low- to- moderate level rental 
fees. Town Meeting member 
Stephen Puffer, who owns Puffton 
Village in North Amherst, claimed 
that rent control has caused 
"disaster" in several major cities, 
and denied that tenants are being 
"gouged" by their landlords. 
Discussion of the article lasted an 
hcJur, after which rent control was 
voted down with little difficulty. 

Also rejected by the meeting was 

article 46, which would have 
allowed five or more unrelated 
persons to reside together under 
one roof. 

A program calling for the 
systematic inspection of every 
rental housing unit in Amherst for 
health and safety code violations 
was passed by the meeting, via 
article 42, by a vote of 118-90. By 
way of recommending the article, 
Mary Wentworth, tenant 
representative of the Landlord- 
Tenants Relations Board, said the 
town's health and safety 
regulations "are minimal, but let's 
enforce what we have." Both the 
Board of Selectmen and the 
Finance Committee were opposed 
to the proposal on the grounds that 
the required inspection of "every" 
rental unit is unreasonable and 
"cannot be administered ef- 
ficiently." The Amherst Tenants 
Association, petitioners for the 
article, withdrew a section of it 
calling for inspections at least once 
every two years. 

Other important articles 

Overlapping the end of the first 
and beginning of the second of the 
meetings' eight sessions was article 
14, the town operating budget, 
which met some strong opposition 
from Selectman William C. Atkins. 
Atkins proposed $171,500 in cuts, 
which figures to a one-dollar 
reduction on the $42 (per $1000 of 
appraised property value) tax rate. 
The Finance Committee had voted 
to recommend an increase to 

Atkins' - proposals were all 
defeated, but the $13 million 
budget did suffer one other cut: a 

$15,000 school bus proposed as 
part of article 18, equipment 
purchases. Superintendent of 
Schools Donald Frizzle conceded 
the elimination of the purchase, a 
deletion which had been recom- 
mended by meeting member Jack 
Wolff, to ascertain his getting a 
$9,000 passenger van to transport 
special education students, which 
Wolff also sought to cut. Frizzle 
said he could live without the new 
bus for another year, but "really 
needed that van." 

Two recommendations which, if 
enacted, would have provided for 
the Northwest Bypass to be built, 
fell in the meeting's second session. 
The two were included as part of a 
package of seven recom- 
mendations by the Northwest Road 
Committee, which was formed to 
study the possibility of building a 
road through the northwest part of 
the UMass campus to ease the 
traffic on North Pleasant St. 

Included in the five remaining 1 
recommendations, all of which 
were passed by the meeting, was a 
plan for the improvement of the 
segment of North Pleasant St. 
which passes through the campus, 
to be jointly funded by the town 
and the University. 

Article 28, recommending the 
town go on record as opposing the 
proposed diversion of 375 million 
gallons per day of water from the 
Connecticut and Miller's Rivers to 
the Quabbin Reservoir to enhance 
Boston's water supply, was ap- 
proved by a 147-55 vote. Among 
those opposing the motion, beside 4 : 
the Finance Committee, v\ 
Selectman Diana Romer, who s 
she was concerned at d vott 

approve the article might jeopardize 
our negotiating position for water." 

One article, number 36, was 
defeated twice by the meeting. 
Passage of the article would have 
allowed the town to allocate the 
expenditure of $95,200 over a five- 
year period to buy the rights to 
develop 58 acres of farmland, 
located on Belchertown Rd., and 
belonging to Henry Walas, himself 
a Town Meeting member. The plan 
was intended to use the land to 
pioneer the preservation of prime 
agricultural land in the town. 

A vote of 116-91 was registered 
in favor of the motion, but it fell 
short of the two-thirds majority 
needed for passage. The meeting 
voted the next day, however, by a 
102-77 tally to reconsider the article 
at a later date. The reconsideration 
was proposed by meeting member 
George Scheurer, who had initially 
voted against the purchase. He said 
that after the first vote he was 
provided with some "good points" 
for the purchase which had not 
come out in the original discussion. 
The article was tabled until after 
article 57, at which point it was 
again defeated, this time by a solid 
vote of 87 for, 113 against. 

A proposed change in town 
policy from the use of any term 
which refers solely to the male sex, 
to a neuter-gender phrase was 
defeated, 70-117. Speaking against 
Christina Piatt's article, Wallace

Hearings tonight on 
Montague nuke site 


The Clamshell Alliance, an ant' 
n. clear power group 
organized the recent occupatu 
the Seabrook, New Hampshire 
nuclear power plant site will not be 
pausing in its efforts for long. 

Tonight and tomorrow night, 
Clamshell representatives will be 
attending public hearings on the 
site of the proposed Montague 
nuclear plant at the Turners Falls 
Gill High School. 

The plant will be built along the 
Connecticut River, and if con- 
structed, would be the largest 
nuclear facility m New England. 

Harvey Wasserman, of the 
Western Massachusetts Clamshell 
Alliance, Monday said represen- 
tatives will be attending the two 
meetings, conducted by the Energy 
Facilities Siting Council, an in- 
dependent regulatory agency 
responsible for the location and 
construction of power facilities. 
^ Wasserman also said the 
Clamshell this week should be 
finalizing its plans for opposing the 
Montague plant. 

Meanwhile, public hearings are 
also being held in Plymouth, Mass., 
where construction of another 
plant, adjacent to the Pilgrim 
facility, is planned. 

Boston Clamshell spokesperson, 
Harvey Halpern, last week said no 
site occupation is planned for 
preventing construction of the 
Pilgrim II. 

Instead, the Boston Alliance will

divided local feeling at a recent 
public forum.

Solar house reopens soon, 
in time for Tomorrow Fair 


Solar Habita* One, the wind and 
solar powered experimental station 
located on Orchard Hill will reopen 
m time for the Toward Tomorrow 
Fair, June 24-27. 

The experiment was closed down 
last week due to lack of funds, but a 
continuation grant from the U. S. 
Energy Research Development 
Administration (ERDA) is expected 
to allow the experiment to continue 
operating. The grant is expected to 
be in the vicinity of $160,000. 

Prof. Duane E. Cromack, project 
manager of Solar Habitat One, said 
the house will be open for tours 
during the Toward Tomorrow Fair 
whether or not the grant is 

Solar Habitat One is a pre- 
fabricated house heated by a 
system that combines wind and 
solar power principles. The heating 
mechanism, caHed a "wind fur- 
nace," is the brainchild of Prof. 
William E. Heronemus, noted 
nationally for his research on 
alternative energy systems. 

Total cost for the wind furnace, 
according to Heronemus, was 
about $340,000. The cost of the 
house was about $50,000. 

Most of the project was funded 
through grants from the National 
Science foundation and ERDA with 
an additional $28,000 from the 
University and $39,000 from private 

Experiments with the wind 
furnace were not finished when 
monies from these grants ran out. 
The continuation grant is an- 
ticipated to account for their 

Heronemus has recently asked 
for a two year leave of absence 
from the University because he is 
"discouraged and exhausted" 
according to a report in local 

Heronemus is discouraged by the 
lack of sufficient funding to create a 
solar energy station on the UMass 
campus and is particularly grieved 
over the slowness of industry to 
mass produce the equipment 
needed for alternative energy 


As reported in the Springfield 
Union, Heronemus is attempting to 
reverse the industrial lag by starting 
up a business of his own to produce 
the blades and frames vital to the 
operation of the wind furnace. 

Heronemus and a group of about 
20 persons including professors 
from other universities, have 
participated in an attempt to 
establish such a business, called 
Ocean Wind Energy Systems, at a 
sight on the former Westover Air 
Force base. 

Heronemus discussed buying 
some property from the Western 
Metropolitan Development 
Corporation, a public development 
industry which brought up a lot of 
the old air force base land. Western 
Metropolitan lobbied heavily in 
conjunction with Ocean Wind 
Energy Systems for another ERDA 
grant which they hoped would

When the faculty voted in favor 
of a union last February, un- 
dergraduate and graduate student 
government leaders said student 
unionization had become a 
necessity since politics would now 
be played at the bargaining table. 

With faculty and administrators 
expected to be seated at 
negotiations within the next few 
months, it seems students will have 
no direct influence on the 
proceedings, nor do they desire it 
as their goal. 

In recent interviews, both the 
undergraduate student trustee and 
the former graduate student senate 
president said student unionization 
is still the best way for students to 
make their presence felt. 

Yet student unionization, with 
several years of time and many 
thousands of student fee- based 
dollars pumped into it, is still a 
distant goal. Only the Graduate 
Student Employees Union, seeking 
to unionize teaching assistants and 
research assistants, is nearing a 
state recognized election. 

•n the meantime, faculty and 
administrators will be negotiating 
such student- related concerns as 
classroom hours, class size and the 
cost of education away from the 
presence of students. 

According to Ralph H. Flynn, 
organizer for the Massachusetts 
Teacher's Association to which the 
UMass unit is affiliated, the best 
model allowing for student to 
participate in an indirect way, calls 
for the faculty to consult wim 
students before and afttr 

Flynn said he hopes the rerently- 
elected negotiations committee will 
adopt the consultation model for 
their bargaining sessions. 

If this method is used, Flynn 
cautioned, students must realize 
they cannot go to the ad- 
ministration and ask for a "better 

Michael Federow, former 
president of the Graduate Student 
Senate, said students represent 
"extras, bit players, and pawns" in 
i he negotiating process.

union, they will have to be satisfied 
with a role as consultants, he said. 
The only other alternative is to have 
students sitting on the same side as 

"I hope to God we won't be 
sitting on the same side as the 
administration," he said. 

Federow termed graduate's 
relations with the faculty union as 
"remarkably open," compared to 
relations with the administration. 

Undergraduate Student Trustee 
Pinky Batiste said students are not 
protected under the current 
governance processes, and their 
influence will be similarly limited 
once negotiations begin. 

"My feelings are that when 
negotiations have started, one of 
the groups will try to buy into the 
students," she said. 

According to Batiste, the faculty 
union has not been as cooperative 
as the students would like, while 
certain members of the Board of 
Trustees have begun to become 
more aware of students needs. 

Students are being forced to 
work on issues directly with the 
administration, instead of working 
jointly with faculty. 

For the summer, Batiste said she 
has two students working on the 
second stage of the provost's long- 
range plan. 

Meanwhile, the faculty are 
gearing up for negotiations to 
begin. Last week, a series of sub- 
committees were formed from the 
30-member negotiations com-

In the sp ng of 1977, 35 students 
were enrolled in Global Survival, 
down from a high of 69 in the fall of 
1973 when the program was 
initiated. The Academic Matters 
Council report to the senate

Stephen E. Guild, who directs 
Global Survival, said that while he 
agrees a study of the freshman year

is "something that's been needed

"people tend tt> forget the in-

So what did I expect? 

Maybe solemn armies of UMass graduates stepping 
in precise time, black and flapping in the wind like so 
many synchronized Supreme Court Justices? 

Perhaps at least a few faint visions of my academic 
life as it flickered before my eyes, at this the 
ceremony marking the death (the last rites) of my 
UMass years? 

Ahhh, but this is UMass 



Clunk. And there goes another champagne cork in 
this graduation resembling nothing as much as a 
summer convention for fruit bats crazed on fermented 
cocoanut juice. 

The true spirit of UMass stood revealed at this our 
holiest of holy days - lighthearted craziness all the 
way. Everywhere you looked was another student 
defying the totalitarian uniformity of cap and gown

(foil, balloons, a fez and feathers); animate graffitti 
shouting, "Look at mel Dammit I didn't let this place 
beat me." 

Even with the commencement speakers the 
students were the scene stealers; Bill Parent and 
Bryan Harvey's speeches far more palatable than 
Chancellor Bromery's inaudible "new chestnuts." 

And the difficulty in hearing brought out another 
side of UMass - the rudeness, the impersonality 
People who've been here for four years finding it 
impossible to sit an extra ten minutes through 
President Wood's "Huh? What's he saying?" speech. 

On this last day at UMass we were given one last

at this institution. "Will the School of Arts and 
bciences please stand. You're graduated. Siddowa" 
It almost makes you wish for a nice homey assembly

The committee will be reviewing

sent out to faculty during the 
spring, asking them to identify 
broad areas of concern to deter- 
mine what the negotiating package 
should look like.

a formal letter must be sent to the 
administration asking for

For those without wheels, the 
three bars on the UMass campus 
(Bluewall, Top Of The Campus, 
Hatch) serve as respectable, 
generally inexpensive and con- 
venient watering-feeding grounds 
during the regular school year. But 
•he summer of '77 finds the Hatch 
shut tight 24 hours each day, and 
aside from a noon to 1:30 p.m 
lunch schedule at the TOC, the 
other two open nights only on an

"They 'ook a real bath in terms of 

loss of dollars." With that in mind, 
the Campus Center Food Services 
have decided upon the very un-

kept this summer. 

Jeffers says that it won't be 
known until perhaps as little as a 
week before the fact whether or not

open for any single period of time.

ITHACA, N. Y. - They take their 
lacrosse very seriously out here in 
this picturesque portion of upstate 
New York. But they never took 
UMass lacrosse very seriously. 

Never, that is, until the quar- 
terfinals of this year's NCAA 
lacrosse championships. That was 
when Garber's Gorillas, seeded 
eighth in the eight-team field, gave 
Cornell, last year's NCAA cham 
pions and number one again this 
season, one of the toughest games 
the Big Red have seen in two years. 
But like last year, when they 
narrowly missed upsetting number 
one Johns Hopkins, the Gorillas fell 
just a little bit short. A 6-1 Cornell 
surge in the third period proved to 
be the difference as UMass was 
eliminated, 17-14, before an 
estimated 3500 at Schoellkopf 
Field, two weeks ago. 

Actually, Cornell fans were 
surprised that the Gorillas were ever 
in the game. Local papers predicted 
a Cornell win by scores like 23-5, 
and suggested that Cornell's only 
problem would be getting up for 
such an easy game. The empty 
stands exemplified this disinterest 
— 17,000 fans showed up for a 
game against Hopkins two weeks 

But things didn't go the way the 
locals expected. After the Big Red 
grabbed an early 5-2 lead, the 
Minutemen fought back with three 
goals in three minutes to tie it. The 
teams traded goals to go off at the 
halt tied 8-8, and one could tell the 
Cornell fan.: w?re starting to feel a 
bit. uncomfortable. 

Jeff Spooner scored an 
unassisted goal to open the second 
half and give the Gorillas their final 
lead of the game at 9-8. But the Big 
Red took over there, and by the 
time the third period had ended, 
were leading 14-10. And had it not 
been for countless miraculous 
saves by UMass goalie Don 
Goldstein, the Gorillas would have 
been down by a lot more. 

Each team scored three times in 
the final quarter, with Cornell 

This Saturday at B.U.'s 
Nickerson Field, the annual Eastern 
New England All-Stars will take on 
Western New England 'Stars in a 7 
p.m. lacrosse game. 

Seniors Mickey Menna, Ken 
Michaud, and Jeff Sponner will 
represent UMass' Garber's Gorillas, 
while assistant coach for the West 
squad will be head coach of the 
Minutemen, Dick Garber. 

The Minutemen had a highly 
successful year, finishing the 
regular season at 11-3. They made 
the national playoffs, playing tough 
against the nation's number one 
team, Cornell, before dropping the 
game, 17-13. 

answering each UMass attempt to 
cut the lead to less than three. 

Cornell attackman Eamon 
McEncaney led all scorers with four 
goals in the contest. Jeff Spooner, 
Steve Pappas, and Norm Smith all 
scored twice for the Gorillas. 

Cornell went on, for the second 
straight year, to defeat Johns 
Hopkins in the tournament final,

Marion Brown at the Fine Arts 
Centert Concert Hall June 9 pt 8

construct a wind energy plant on

* FacSen suggests study 


Freshman ysar in a large 
university is usually uninteresting, 
with most students attending in- 
troductory lecture classes of 300 to 
400 people. 

"I'd like to think the program has 
helped students who otherwise 
would have drifted through," he 

Guild attributes declining enroll- 
ments to lack of funds for 
recruitment in addition to misin- 
formed or confused summer 
counselors, who are the first to 
have contact with potential 

During their first year. Guild said 
the program did its own mailing to 
incoming freshmen. But since then, 
they have relied upon summer 
counselors to provide freshmen 
with information on Global Sur- 

Some freshmen get the idea they 
may not graduate in four years if 
they enter the program; others 
want to get started on their major 
requirements and prepare them- 
selves for an eventual job, and they 
don't quite see how Global Survival 
fits into that, he said. 

If the Faculty Senate's com- 
mittee, scheduled to complete its 
report during February 1978, 
recommends an extended com- 
mitment to freshman year 
programs as a recruitment vehicle, 
Global Survival could be revived in 
the fall of 1978. 

Meanwhile, Guild won't be out of 
job. According to Hunt, he will be 
helping with the freshman year 
study, although the fate of the 
program's secretary has not yet 
been determined. 

The Faculty Senate also ap- 
proved and sent to the Chancellor's 
office for further action a new 
grievance procedure for graduate 

If approved by the ad- 
ministration, the document will 
replace the current policy authored 
by Graduate School Dean Vere C. 

The new document is largely the 
work of Tirr Austin, a member of 
the Graduate Student Senate's 
executive board and a student in 
*he Linguistics Dept. 

Austin said that previous at- 
tempts to enact a grievance 
procedure have failed once they 
reached the desks of UMass 
lawyers in Boston. The lawyers 
usually get worried that graduate 
students may be able to sue the 
University in court. 

Austin's new policy should not 
run into these problems, however, 
since it attempts to get grievances 
settled at the lowest, most informal 
level possible. 

Austin said he has divided the 
process into three stages, 
culminating with a "fairly legalistic" 
hearing by a committee of three 
faculty who report to Dean 
Chappell. Austin said he is working 
on an "Every Person's Guide" to 
the grievance procedure this 

According to Austin, the as-yet 
unrecognized Graduate Student 
Employees Union will be handling 
grievance procedures in disputes 
over teaching assistantships, while 
his policy will cover such problems 
as plagiarism. 

In the past two years, he said, the 
graduate school has had to handle 
a plagiarism case where a student 
turned in work not his own, and 
one where a professor put his name 
on a student's work. 

Faculty senators voted to reject a 
motion taking action aoainst over- 
crowding in the Rhetoric Program, 

by increasing on- loan' faculty to 
the program. 

A report by the Academic 
Matters Council asked for "a large 
infusion of temporary resources to 
reduce the backlog in demand" and 
a smaller increase in permanent 
resources for the program. 

"In the fall of 1976, ap- 
proximately 2,000 of the 3,999 
freshmen did not register in a 
Rhetoric course. Characteristically 
some two hundred seniors, in- 
cluding some transfer students, 
complete their Rhetoric 

requirement during their last 
semester," the report stated. 

But the 
given a 

Inquiry Program was 
vote of confidence," 
to Faculty Senate 
v.v-. c .a. y Terence Burke, a 
professor of geography. The senate 
voted to extend the program five 
more years before initiating another 

Senators also voted in a new 
delegate to the Board of Trustees. 
Prof. Howard 0. Brogan of the 
English Dept. will take over for Prof. 
George T. Sulzner of Political 

The presiding officer for next 
year will be Prof. William K. Price of

Juna 1. 1977 


goddess is Sister George, the 
saving grace of a BBC radio soaper 
who is sacrificed to save the 
ratings. As Sister George runs head 
on into a ten- ton truck, so does 
June Buckridge who has begun to 
play the part too seriously off-the- 
air. "How many more victims are 
you going to claim?" she screams 
at Mrs. "Mercy," who replies that 
dear old Mr. So-and-so is "due for a 
stroke on Friday" and poor Mrs. 
Somebody, bronchitis. Gone in two 
days. She lets the cat in late one 
rainy night. "We live in a violent 
world - it's the BBC's policy - 
contemporary appeal." 

The "killings" take place at 
different levels. First there is the 
suspicion that Sister George is to 

be written out of the serial. Enter 
paranoia. June Buckridge sets out 
to do herself in. Between alcohol 
and "little cigars" and her harsh, 
sometimes brutal treatment 
towards her "flatmate" and 
possession, Alice McNaught (Ann- 
Marie T. Tessler) she is left, by the 
final lights-out, a broken goddess, 
friendless, surrounded by flowers 
from well-wishers. "Best wishes for 
a triumphant funeral!" reads one 
symDathv message. 

This is an English comic-tragedy 
and first off we must accept, if we 
are to enjoy the performance, the 
dubbed-in British accents. 
Eisenhaure has some difficulty in 
assigning the character of 
Buckridge her voice; at one time we 
are hearing what we may accept as 

a broad English accent and a 
second later she is struggling with a 
Bronx boardering on Cockney. By 
the second act she is doing more 
screaming or moaning and her 
superb acting abilities take over 
Tessler's whining appears a bit 
overdone at first until we learn later 
on, in the last act, that the "child" 
is really 34 years old and feigns 
adolescence to obtain affection 
We are suddenly aware of a fine 
performance. At only one point was 
I distracted by her dainty British 
accent; an offstage "I shan't!", you 
know, with a short, staccato on the 
"a" somehow lost something in 
translation. The role of Mrs. Mercy 
Croft, a refined and cultured 
"bitch" as Sister George refers to 
her, is perhaps the most con- 
vincing, as performed by Judy I. 



* Summer theatre 

Fine. Madame Xenia, the gypsy 
high priestess throughout the 
killing, is played by Liz Redler- 
Thompson as convincingly as we 
may accept such a character in real 

What is truly amazing is that so 
much happened, so much emotion 
transpired in that short space of 
time with so few characters in one 
setting. Perhaps the credibility of 
the play lies in Applehurst, the 
setting of the soap opera where 
Sister George is heroine. We are 
constantly aware throughout the 
performance that this is a per- 
formance but we do not hesitate to 
accept the reality of Applehurst, as 

by now I'm sure many of us have 
checked the maps for Fernwood 

The final burial of Sister George 
is that her career is not finished 

^T h J, he I 80 " She is to inherit 
Toddler Time" and is being 
considered for the title role in the 
new production of "The World of 
Clarabell Cow." She insists that she 
will not play the part of a "flawed 
cow' for children's hour but our 
last glimpse of June Buckridge is 
her sitting, re ;king, a bottle in one 
hand - no • ot glass by this time 
- mooing' into the twilight. It is 
the twilight jf t, ie idols, and she is 
only playing her part

"ZZt SPURTS by Russ Smith 

As we all know, the National 
Basketball Association season is 
drawing to a close early in this 
summer month of June with the 
Portland Trailblazers and the 
Philadelphia 76'ers battling for the 
league championship in the final 
round series. 

It shouldn't come as a shock that 
ihe 76'ers are on their way to 
winning the title, which has eluded 
them for some time now. Fans 
across the country will be 
somewhat upset (not to mention 
how the Blazers will feel) when this 
turns out to be fact instead of just 
speculation. Why? - why will the 
76'er's victorious season be looked 
on as bad for basketball? Why do 
fans despise them, and root for the 
underdog Trailblazers? 

It's not that the Sixers play more 
one-on-one than team basketball, 
the way the game was invented to 
be played - as a team sport. The 
Sixers have developed a more 

it News 


DC. for the National Student 

Will the UMass administration or 
student goverment ever attempt to 
censor a student publication, or 
punish its editors and reporters 
after the fact? 

At the Massachusetts Institute of 
Technology, faculty and student 
organizations have taken action 
against a student alternative weekly 
for an article rating the sexual 
potency of 36 MIT men. 

While the censure of Thursday 
by the Association of Student 
Activities amounts to nothing more 
than a "handslapping", Thursday's 
editor John Roselli said the MIT 
Faculty Committee on Discipline 
has placed the two authors on 
formal probation. 

assist-minded squad through the 
playoffs, with less emphasis on 
their individual scoring totals. 

And just because the Sixers 
knocked our local boys, the Celts, 
out of the playoffs, is no reason for 
non-support. It would look better 
for Celtic enthusiasts to say their 
team lost to the eventual champs. 

Ahh, now I remember why: some 
people, followers of the sport, fee! 
the Sixers don't deserve the title 
because they bought it. For $3 
million dollars in the person of one 
Dr. J. 

They obtained J' from the 
going- nowhere N.Y. Nets for that 
price. Not that he has single- 
handedly won games for the Sixers, 
but without him, his team probably 
wouldn't have gone this far. 

It so happens that without either 
Lloyd Free, Henry Bibby, or Doug 

Collins, the Sixers wouldn't have 
come this far. 

But even if the Sixers in a sense 
did buy the title, what's wrong with 
that? Sports is a business, with its 
owners only interested in one thing 
- making more money. So if buy- 
ing a player will give you the 
championship on a silver platter, do 

The Sixers still had to fight to 
make it all the way to the finals. 
Acquiring Dr. J. didn't shake the 
balance of power in the league, nor 
even make the Sixers unbeatable, 
just tougher to defeat. 

Look what the Boston Red Sox 
attempted to do last season. The 
day before the trading deadline, 
they attempted to buy themselves 
the American League East pennant 
by spending over $3 million dollars 
(seems to be a popular figure) to 

gej( pitchers Rollie r-ingers, Vida 
Bl|e, and outfielder Joe Rudi from 
the Oakland Athletics. 

The flag was being raised on the 
pole when the New York Yankees 
jumped in to steal Blue from within 
the Sox grasp, which didn't exactly 
turn on Red Sox fans. 

All went for naught however 
when homeplate umpire Bowie 
Kuhn called all the runners out at 
the plate and shipped 'em back to 
the West Coast, nullifying the 
trade. Kuhn stated the trade was 
not in "the best interest of 
baseball" and was tilting the 
balance of power in the league. He 
was right. Nice try Yanks, Sox. 

A's owner Charlie Finley wasn't 
overly excited and Kuhn's actions 
cost Finley plenty, especially when 
all but Blue left the team as free 
agents at the end of the season. 

Two teams needing help got the 
agents (Fingers to San Diego, Rudi 
to California) and the balance of 
power wasn't affected (neither 
team is going anywhere). 

Had the Sox gotten the three 
A's, Beantown fans would've gone 
crazy; they would've rationalized 
the pennant-buying approach. 

Sometimes the buck does it, 
sometimes it doesn't. 

Ask Salt Walther. He struck out 
attempting to buy his way into the 
Indy 500, by purchasing a car which 
had qualified. Should've let him 
have it. Would've lost by a mile 

What it comes down to is this: 
Sports are entertainment for Joe 
Fan, while the money is entertain- 
ing to the owners. 

Sure wish I could be an en- 
tertained owner!!

Stage set for local summer theatre 

Mrs. Mercy Croft (Judey 
I. Fine) offers June "Sister 
George" Buckridge 
(Gretchen L. Eisenhavre) a 
role in a children's radio 


The curtain is not down on area 
theatre this summer, though in 
some cases the stage has traded a 
conservative backdrop for a more 
natural setting. In cooperation with 
the Pines Theatre Festival, the City 
Studio Theatre of Northampton will 
be putting on two Shakespearean 
Plays, A Midsummer Night's 
Dream and As You Like It, at the 
Pines Theatre in Look Park, on Rte. 
9 in Florence. The first performance 
is June 21: watch the Summer 
Collegian for details on curtain 
times and ticket information. 

This weekend the Beholder's 
Puppet Theatre, based in the 
Brattleboro Center for the Per- 
forming Arts in Brattleboro, Vt., will 
present a puppet show at 23 
Pleasant St. entitled "Following," it 
is about a family and the different 
followings that they choose. Rod 
puppets and masks are used in 
presenting this musical, which the 
producers stress is not merely for 
children, though they should find it 
as amusing as adults will. 

Since February of 1975 the 
Beholder's Puppet Theatre has 

been circulating throughout New 
England performing mostly out- 
doors in streets and parks as well as 
presenting longer, more involved 
studies inside. This weekend's 
performances of "Following" is 
under the direction of Neek 

A little closer to home, The 
Commonwealth Stage, a 
professional performing group, will 
be in residence this summer at the 
University and will present three 
plays during their stay here. 

The theatre company is the most 
recent addition in membership to 
the Legion of Residential Theatres 
which includes StageWest in West 

The Commonwealth Stage will 
be in residence from July 27 
through Sept. 4 and will perform A 
Funny Thing Happened On The 
Way To The Forum, Kennedy's 
Children, and Count Dracula. Each 
production will run for two weeks in 
Center eatre at the Fine Arts 

Unfortunately, by the time of this 
publication two worthwhile 
productions will have passed on. 

We can only look back on them and 
offer a few reflections. 

Hampshire College's final 
production, A Cathouse Cabaret 
(May 19 and 20), was more of an 
end-of-the-semester let-loose than 
a theatrical event, but that was the 
aim of it all. 

A group of very talented 
students, under the direction of 
Nancy Schaffir, herself a student 
have transformed the Studio 
Theatre at Hampshire College into a 
Berlin cabaret. Very "live" en- 
tertainment, dancing, and beer 
were all included in a one dollar 

David Starr played the Master of 
Ceremonies, singing the Cabaret hit 
"Wilkommen" for starters and 
adding his personal touch to every 
act that followed. Ann Dudley 
opened the stage up with her 
dynamic rendition of "I'm Still 
Here" and later "Mack the Knife." 
Her performance would lead us to 
believe that should she so choose, a 
career on Broadway may very well 
be mapped out. 

Director Nancy Schaffir also took 
part in the act. Her imitation of 
Marlene Dietrich singing "Falling In 

Love Again" was well received by 
the audience who were seated, 
cabaret style, at cafe tables where 
they were served beer and chips. 
An exceptionally annoying horse- 
laugher was seated directly behind 
me but all-in-all his presence added 
to the nightclub atmosphere. 

A bass-drums- piano band 
worked exceptionally well together 
and with the cast. The entire 
company participated in the finale 
"Everything's Coming Up Roses" 
with chorus line kicks and high 
spirits from the pleased crowd. 

— Memento Mori — 
After all is said and done about 
the presence of a Lesbianism theme 
in me play, The Killing of Sister 
George is about the rituals of 
sacrifice. "If you knew anything 
about anthronninny," says Mrs. 
Mercy Croft (Judyl. Fine) to Sister 
Goerge (Gretchen L. Eisenhaure) 
after she has just slipped her the 
pink slip, "you would know that a 
tribe chooses its most loved person 
to be sacrificed." The deity is killed 
in order to save the crops or the 
society itself. In this case the

The movie concerns the life and 
death of an intermittent love affair, 
between one self-deprecating, 
Jewish comedian obsessed with 
death, women, New York City and 
adult education named Alvie Singer 
(Woody Allen) and a beautiful, 
talented, benignly insane model- 
turned-aspiring singer named Annie 
Hall. The movie takes us from the 
very nascent stages of the affair, 
through its highs and lows, its 
calms and its storms, its sorrows 
and its pities, culminating in their 

eventual separation, something 
presaged from the affairs in- 
cipience. And yet, while Alvie 
Singer looses Annie Hall in a 
physical sense he never loses the 
emotional love he feels for her. 

Not being privy to the latest 
gossip from the inside sources, I 
shall have to take the word of every 
other critic in the U.S., all of whom 
belabor the point that the film is 
actually autobiographical, about 
the real life affair between Allen and 
Keaton a short while ago. This 
news is not surprising, considering

the strange resemblence to be 
found between the movies 
characters and the actors. If it is 
true, it must have been a 
tremendously cathartic experience 
for both Allen and Keaton to ex- 
pose a personal part of their lives to 
the world in this poignant yet 
hilarious drama. 

What Allen has done is to dissect 
a relationship, laying bare the 
various forces acting on the par- 
ticipants and the emotions and 
feelings of the players. In -his 
respect, the film is quite powerful. 
Of course, cloaking this intense 
drama is a movie replete with the 
normal staple of Allen gags and 
jokes on "pet" subjects, such as 
New York City, Jews, a.-iti- 
semitism, women, death, im- 
potence, machismo, etc... Quite a 
bit of the dialogue consists of 
esoteric references to Yiddish 
customs and similar abstruse 
subjects. For those unfortunate 
enough to not comprehend these, 
the movie drags a mite. 

The film is directed by guess 
who? Woody Allen. Using a 
number of creative innovations, 
Allen literally pulls the audience into 
the fray, and we find ourselves 
almost full-fledged participants in 
the movie. 

It is a paradox to say that Woody 
Allen is acting in his movies; in- 
stead, it seems that we are seeing 
Woody Allen in any particular 
absurd situation. Whether it be a 
frustrated attempt to have sex 
because of unending doubts as to 
the veracity of the Warren Report, 
or chasing live lobsters around a 
kitchen floor, the character is 
Woody Allen. 

For Woody Allen fans (myself 
included), this represents his best 
work, with the possible exception 
of Bananas. For those who are not 
wild about Allen (I have yet to meet 
someone who virulently dislikes 
Woody Allen), I still recommend 
this film, as it is a very entertaining 
movie, regardless of message or

helps give rock 

its bad name 



Rock music has a reputation for 
inducing violence. 

Since the time British kids, upon 
first hearing "Rock Around The 
Clock" in the film Blackboard 
Jungle proceded to slash up their 
seats in time to the music, third- 
party observers to this broad youth- 
oriented musical genre have 
associated it with everything "bad" 
r hat youths themselves are 
associated with. Violence. Drugs. 
Sex. One priest, I believe it was in 
Florida, sponsored a massive 
record-burning session a few years 
ago, based on his "facts" that of 
every 1000 teenage pregnancies, 
984 of the girls committed for- 
nication while listening to rock 
music. I'd like to know where this 
guy gets his information. 

The fact is, while most of the 
things adults fear in our music are 
exaggerated by them, we have in 
the past, through our actions or 
through the music itself, given 
them some reasons for their 
hysteria. The swiveling pelvis of 

Elvis Presley was nothing if not 
purely sexual. "Street Fighting 
Man" is, if not a clear-cut call to 
arms, almost always construed as 
such. And although John Lennon 
still, ten years later, denies that 
"Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds" 
was about an LSD trip, it is very 
hard to believe his arguments. 
Adults merely take these cues and 
blo»*/ 'hem, to one degree or 
another, out of proportion. 

The huge rock festivals of the 
late sixties, such as Altamont and 
Woodstock, fed our parents more 
food for fear. Even Mick Jagger has 
said that the only people who didn't 
have fun at Altamont were himself 
and the guy who got killed, but 
people will forever see the festival 
as a study in the violence nature of 
youths. And Woodstock, in its own 
way, provided us with an excellent 
example of the style of mass 
cooperation that hippies have long 
since been trying to duplicate for 
the rest of the world, but despite 
the extensive give-and-take at- 
mosphere of the place, a few 
isolated negative incidents (to be 
expected at any gathering of 
400,000 people) were enough for 
the entire affair to be branded by 
most of the adult American 
population as a mess

Day" concert in Northampton, held

'Annie' Woody 's best yet 


rttt Annie Hall Directed by 
Woody Allen, starring Woody Allen 
and Diane Keaton. Produced by 
Charles H. Joffo, rated PG; Now 
playing at the Springfield 
Showcase Cinemas. 

Woody Allen is the only 
">median around these days that 
specializes in s*?lf deprecation. He 
gets us to laugh. at his stereotypic 
J?wish parents, his miserable up- 
bringing, his failures in schools, 

love and life. We laugh at Woody 
Allen, not with him; and yet, this 
miserable schlemiel with ineffable 
charm consistently gets the girl. 
Well, almost always. 

In his new film, Annie Hall, 
Allen's winning streak comes to a 
painful halt, as he loses the love of 
'he namesake of the movie, 
marvelously portrayed by Diane 


Fairgrounds, was more than 
enough to give local already- 
frightened-of-our-music adults 
enough to worry about for the next 
ten years at least. A very con- 
servative judgement would call the 
whole affair an unmitigated 
disaster. The artistic line-up 
consisted, except for Taj Mahal, of 
mostly tired and tiring folksingers, 
none of whom, including Mahal! 
could be. blamed for inciting the 
crowd to «riot. No, it was other 
factors that led to the thousands of 
dollars of damage incurred by the 
neighbors of the fairgrounds. 

Local advertising for the show 
was sparse; most of the publicity 
was focused on radio ads in other 
parts of New England (WAAF-FM 
in Worcester, in fact, co-sponsored 
the event), and most of the local 
residents were unprepared for what 
was to come. 

A large portion of the over 
20,000- person crowd arrived in 
Northampton Friday evening, and 
with an albeit short-lived ban on 
camping, many of the kids found 
no place to spend the night. Rather 
than shell out $20 for a hotel room, 
many of the early arrivers began to 
make themselves at home, sacking 
out on private property at will. 
Bordering fences became firewood. 
The Valley Advocate reported one 
resident coming home Friday night 
to find two concert-goers sitting in 
his living room, calmly watching 
television, and another who 
threatened to pull the trigger of his 
shotgun if the kids whom he had 
refused the use of his camper to 
and subsequently began to'destroy 
it didn't get away in a hurry. They 

If Friday night wasn't bad 
enough, Saturday certainly was. 
With package stores reporting as 
much as three times their average 
Saturday sales of beer -and wine, 
the crowd seemed to be readying 
itself for the eventual con- 

Concert goers began to file in 
early, with Vassar Clements slated 
«0 open at 10 a.m. Unwilling to shell 
out $12 for a ticket, many began 
'rying alternate means of entrance. 
Several of the day's injuries were 
incurred by those who attempted to 

scale the barbed-wire fences 
surrounding the fairgrounds. To 
keep the 25,000 or so visitors in line, 
250 private security guards (paid 
$40 a head by the promoters), 40 
Northampton cops (Mayor Daivd 
W. Cramer had demanded the day 
before payment by the promoters 
to fund overtime pay to his police 
staff, but their check apparently fell 
far short of the $11,400 logged in 
overtime hours), 60 state police in 
two shifts, 24 Hampshire County 
deputy sheriffs in two shifts, and six 
guard dogs. It may seem like a lot of 
protective manpower, but it proved 
insufficient to keep the highly 
unruly audience in line. 

Around 11 a.m., things began 
really getting out of hand. Kids 
started pelting security guards with 
bottles, sticks and fists, demanding 
free admission. Members of the 
crowd even uprooted an entire tree 
and used it to batter their way 
through a barn to allow passage to 
the grounds. Others eventually tried 
to widen the gap by setting fire to 
it, but it was soon extinguished by 
the fire department. 

Three drug overdoses were 
reported over the course of the day, 
as were numerous other injuries, 
including one man who was 
hospitalized after being struck by a 
moving car on Interstate 91. Ap- 
proximately 35 persons in all were 
arrested, about half for drunken- 
ness and most of the others for 
disorderly conduct. Two people 
were nabbed for allegedly heisting 
several hundred dollars worth of 
equipment from parked cars. One 
man, identified as Bruce J. Tirado, 
22, of Meriden, Connecticut, was 
arrested for armed holdup, after 

having allegedly pulled a .32 caliber 
pistol on people near the 
fairgrounds Saturday and robbed 
them. He was alleged to have 
pulled the gun on the two North- 
ampton policemen who arrested 

As the show unwound in the late 
afternoon, so did the crowd, most 
of them leaving town by 7 p.m. 
Promises against ever having any 
more such events in Northampton 
flew all over. Promoters of the 
concert last week agreed to pay out 
$3000 in property damages to 
fairground neighbors. 

Violent rock crowds in 1977 are 
expected at punk rock concerts; it 
is strangely ironic, perhaps even 
paradoxical, that such destruction 
occurred at what amounted to a 
folk rock festival. Folk rock is a very 
calm style of music, and its 
audience is generally regarded as 
quite laid-back, but they did not 
display this attitude at the "May 
Day" affair. 

It is an entirely irresponsible 
move to remove, as some have 
done, the stigma of blame for the 
mess from the concert-goers 
themselves. For its lack of 
preparation and proper security, 
town officials are, of course, also 
partially to blame, but it is a further 
indication of the lack of maturity of 
these youths that they in turn can 
blame their parents for being afraid 
of our music. It was only a small 
portion of the festival's attendees, 
but those kids who were directly 
responsible for the May 14 fiasco in 
Northampton are an excellent 
example of what gives rock music 
the bad name it still carries in many

All sports, or Just the 'big ' ones? 


The granting of 120 tuition 
waivers for UMass athletes by the 
Board of Trustees last week 
initiated pronouncements of doom 
and delight, with many on the 
doom side accusing the trustees of 
declaring their support not for 
UMass athletics, but for the football 
and basketball teams. 

The trustee vote was close, with 
UMass President Robert C. Wood 
casting the deciding vote to make it 
9-8 in favor of the waiver. 

"I'm very concerned about the 
tuition waiver policy being passed," 
said Pinky Batiste, student trustee 
for the Amherst campus. "There 
were no stipulations to the way it 
will be used." 

Student Government 
Association President Jon A. Hite 
also criticized the plan, since the 
entire tuition waiver package will be 
coming up for trustee review at 
their next meeting in August. 

At the time, the board will 
consider re-instituting tuition 
waivers for other majors, such as 
music and dance, for dormitory 
counselors and for others based on 
academic merit, extracurricular 

service to the University and need. 

But those associated with the 
Athletics Dept. say the waivers 
were desperately needed to im- 
prove many sports forced to go 
without scholarship support. 

Currently, only men's football 
and basketball and women's 
basketball and gymnastics are 
given scholarships. While the 
football and basketball team can 

David C. Bischoff 

divvy up a total of $170,000, the 
women's teams must split up 

Director of Athletics Frank 
Mclnerney explains that the women 
two years ago decided it was okay 
to give women scholarship monies. 

Mclnerney and others say they 
hope the tuition waivers will help 
the department finance the 
programs for women, required 
under the Title IX act. 

Chancellor Randolph W. 
Bromery said, "It broke the dam for 
reconsideration of all tuition 
waivers," while providing a way for 
the department to improve 
women's programs without 
downgrading men's sports. 

Bromery said that while the 
trustee discussion "sounded like a 
discussion of 120 football waivers," 
that was not the case. 

A policy on how to distribute the 
waivers has yet to be defined, but 
from the looks of it so far, different 
groups on campus will be lobbying 
for a chance to participate in a 
committee if one is formed. 

According to former student 

government President Jay A. 
Martus, students were basically left 
out of the decision on tution 

Martus said only one of his three 
appointees remained on the 
Athletic Council of the Faculty 
Senate for the entire year. 

Hite said he has not had a chance 
to appoint new members to the 

The push for waivers came not 
from the council, however, but 
from within the department itself. 

About the time the football team 
had finished compiling their drab 5- 
5 record, department officials 
began to think of c ous drive to 
establish tuition waivers for their 


New Vice-chancellor named 

The UMass Board of Trustees last week made official the 
appointment of James L. McBee as vice-chancellor for ad- 
ministration and finance. 

His appointment will be effective July 1, when he will assume 
responsibility for campus operations including personnel relations, 
physical plant operation, Campus Center, transportation, payroll and 
accounting, and business and financial management procedures. 

McBee was named after a year-long search by a committee of 
11 faculty, students and staff. 

Appointed in 1975 to the position of executive officer to the 
president of Illinois State University, McBee is currently a member of 
the Board of Agricultural Advisors in Illinois, a consultant to the 
Peace Corps and a consultant to Illinois State University museums. 

Alumni hardly recognize the place 


"Is this really UMass?" 

This is the way many alumni felt, 
as they returned to campus for a 
reunion weekend, last Friday 
through Sunday. This past 
weekend's reunion brought back 
classes dating from the class of 
1912 continuing with every fifth 
class up to 1957. 

Over 1000 members of these 
classes accepted the invitations 
sent to them by the Alumni Office. 
The alumni had their choice of 
weekend accommodations in either 
the Campus Center or McNamara 
dormitory. Their dining and dancing 
was taken care of by the Campus 
Center and the day-time events of 

tours and meetings were arranged 
by the alumni staff. 

An alumnus from 1927 Wr«s 
amazed at how much the University 
had grown. He remarked on how he 
kept getting lost because the few 
familiar buildings were surrounded 
by new ones. In his day, he said, the 
dining commons were in Draper 
Hall and the entire female 
population on campus could be 
housed in one dormitory. 

When asked what he thought of 
the University now, he said, "I think 
the University has expanded to 
become a wonderful educational 
opportunity. I am especialiv in- 
terested in the five-college program 
and I plan on going to the seminar 

on it today." 

Dick Smith, from the class of 
19 12 said the entire undergraduate 
population back then could fit into 
Stockbridge Hall. 

When asked what the students in 
'42 did for social activities, he said 
that things were pretty quiet and 
the.e wasn't really that much to do. 
The only things going on were 
weekend dances or hops that were 
held without any alcoholic 

Smith is a nuclear physicist and 
he expressed concern over the 
recent student protest against 
nuclear power. He said he didn't 
condemn the students for protest- 
ing but he wished they could have 

Trustees play around with 
DC Trust Fund monies 


The UMass Board of Trustees in 
a little- publicized vote, ordered 
$418,000 removed from the Dining 
Commons Trust Fund to pay for 
operating costs at the Worcester 
Medical School and at the Amherst 

According to student Trustee 
Pinky Batiste, the trust fund is 
composed of "left-over" student 
fee money held in reserve for large 
food purchases. A memo from 
Chancellor Randolph W. Bromery 
to UMass President Robert C. 
Wood said these funds would not 
be needed for disignated ex- 
penditures in the latter part ot the 
next academic year, or perhaps a 
year from next fall. 

Part of the money will go to pay 
off $193,000 of immediate debts, 
stemming from a Dept. of Cor- 
porations and Taxation con- 
fiscation of University funds in 
April. The department asked the 
state to turn over the funds in 
payment of state meal tax money. 

The University is suing on the 
grounds that UMass is a state 
institution and is not subject to the 
meal tax legislation. 

The trustees also approved the 
transfer of funds to support the 
Worcester campus, pending 
deficiency grants by the state 

According to a memo sent by 
Wood to the trustees, the money, 
$225,000 worth, is needed to meet 
shortages in personnel accounts, 
medical and surgical supplies and 

Another $155,000 was ap- 
propriated from Boston. 

In the memo. Wood stated the 
loan will be repaid as soon as 
deficiency funds are made available 
from the state. In the event the 
legislature refuses the requests, the 
loans will be paid back by June 30 

Amherst Budget Director Warren 
W. Gulko said Worcester would 
have to curtail its operations 
sharply in that event, but said 

legislative refusal is not likely to 

Batiste also said work is 
proceeding on the trustee sub- 
committee looking into UMass 
investments in South Africa. 

She said the committee has thus 
far recommended the University

more information telling them 
about nuclear power. 

Smith is working in a nuclear 
power plant in Idaho, and says that 
nuclear energy is a safe and ef- 
ficient source of power. 

The alumni's weekend activities 
were a combination of tours of the 
campus and re-acquaintance 
lunches with former classmates. 
The alumni had the opportunity to 
have breakfast with Chancellor 
Randolph W. Bromery and discuss 
any questions they had about the 
University. The weekend's reunion 
was highlighted with Saturday's 
Alumni Awards Luncheon which is 
held in recognition of reunion 
classes and presentation of 
Distinguished Service Awards. 

This year four distinguished 
service awards were given. John 
Parnell, of the class of 1966, was 
awarded for his work as president 
of the Alumni Association. Through 
his efforts the associations financial 
contributions have continued to 

Andrew Knowles, Class of 1957 
was given the award for his work in 
the School of Engineering and with 
its respective alumni. 

Ralph O'Brien, Class of 1952, was 
cited for his accomplishments in 
the business profession. 

John J. Finnegan, Class of 1961, 
currently speaker of the 
Massachusetts House of 
Representatives, was given the 
award for his public leadership as a 
statesman and a legislator.

Dream on, little dreamer, dream on 


.7777777777777... A dream is 
a wish your heart makes, when 
you're fast asleep... Dreams are 
more important than sleep. Your 
body can be rested without dreams, 
but your mind needs a special time 
to itself. It is during the dream-state 
that the mind is allowed to re- 
construct the many different 
factors it has been introduced 
during the waking hours. Everyone 
dreams. Some, who claim they 
don't, are just deep sleepers and 
take longer to awaken, so they 
forget easily. 

Helen Keller, who was deaf, 
dumb and blind, said this about 
dreams. "I smell and taste much, as 
in my waking hours, but the sense 
of touch plays a less important part. 
In sleep I amost never grope. No 
one guides me. Even in a crowded 
street, I am self-sufficient, and I 
enjoy an independance quite 
foreign to my physical life... Once in 
a dream, I held a pearl in my hands. 
I have no memory-vision of a real 
pearl. The one I saw in my dream 
must, therefore, have been a 
creation of my imagination. It was a 
smooth, exquisitely molded 
crystal... My pearl was dew and fire, 
the velvety green of moss, the soft 
whiteness of lilies..." 

There is a difference between 
daydreams and night dreams. An 
ordinary day-dream is often 
regarded as resulting from free 
association with words or ideas we 
have encountered during the day. 

One thought leads to another as the 
mind travels in a pattern provoked 
by the initial stimulus. The night 
dream is marked by rapid-eye 
movements (REM). This stage of 
subconciousness is the actual 
dream state. It can occur from three 
to five times a night. If the mind 
does not reach this level because of 
over-work, staying up for hours 
past normal times, hallucinations 
and distortions will occur. This is 
because the mind has been given 
no time to loosen up and be 
allowed to wander. It begins to 
malfunction and distort reality, 
reality. Dreams 
are essential to 
well being and 
good health.

people are reluctant to fully dis- 
cuss their dreams, fearing pos-

closure of their inner-most 
thoughts. We did, however, talk to 
a few people about their dreams 
and. this is what they divulged: "I 
remember being swallowed by a

Hello, new students. Welcome to 

Much of what you see around 
campus will appear strange to you. 
Much of what you read in this 
newspaper will be meaningless to 
you. Do not be alarmed. This 
condition will persist for at least 
four years. 

No matter how long you live at 
UMass, some things will always 
seem peculiar to you. Why, for 
example, did they build a tall, 
concrete building on the north side 
of campus with a giant periscope 
on the side of it? Who looks out of 
thoi window? What are they 
looking for? 

Or, consider the wide variety of 
people living in Amherst during the 
summer Clearly, most of them 
don't actually do anything, but they 
are an integral part of Amherst life. 

Who are all those people sitting in 
the Coffee Shop all day? Who are 
those people playing frisbee on the 
other side of the pond all day? Are 
they hired by the University to give 
the illusion of activity? Or are they 
waiting for the South Amherst bus 
that never came? 

Clearly, there is something 
strange about UMass. Where else 
in the world can you go to class 
fifty feet from the busiest bar in 
New England? Where else can you 
go to school with Fat Albert? 

But UMass is not only strange: 
it's confusing. And sometimes it 
seems as if it must be deliberately 
confusing. People at UMass speak 
their own language, usually ab- 
breviations and initials rather than 
words. While in the Campus 
Center, you can visit the CCA, the 
BW, or the TOC. You can stop by 
the offices of the BOG, the LSO, 

RSO, SCER, VCCA, or any of the 
offices of the SGA. Moving across 
campus, you go to the CDC to find 
out about the LSAT, the GMAT, or 
even sign up for the CLEP. 
Swinging through another part of 
campus, you run into BCP, EWC, 
and VITA. 

That's the problem. Everyone 
seems to know what they're talking 
about. They throw initials around 
with truly awesome dexterity. It 
doesn't really matter whether 
anyone can tell what they are 
saying, as long as time has been 
saved by eliminating unnecessary 

It's nothing to worry about, 
though. If they have to, University 
people can slow down long enough 
to speak English for a while. You 
can get through without learning 
the language. You just don't sound 
as important. 

fragmented, about people I know. 
Seldom' do I dream about strangers. 
My dreams are usually con- 
versations, lots of sexual ones, but 
hardly ever scary dreams. 

Michael McKinny: "I haven't 
been dreaming lately. Sometimes I 
dream in color, and if I do, I 
remember it for being in color. 

What do you dream? Is it in 

color? Is it symbolic or reflective of 
your inner person? To try to find 
out, keep a pad of paper and pencil 
next to your bed while you are 
sleeping. Then, immediately upon 
waking, write down your dreams 
and keep a journal for awhile. 
Maybe you'll learn more about your 
desires and fears, or be able to 
solve a difficult problem that has 
eluded you in your waking hours.

PAUMA discusses recognition 


Discussion of the faculty union 
and unionization of faculty and 
staff dominated the second annual 
general meeting of the Professional 
Association of UMass- Amherst 

PAUMA is an informal gover- 
nance body for professional staff, 
such as heads of residence, special 
programs and some Whitmore 
staff. The group is not recognized 
by the University trustees in their 
governance document. 

Chancellor Randolph W. 
Bromery told the group that the

trustees are in the process of form- 
ing a committee to look at the 
current governance document to 
see where it comes into conflict 
with collective bargaining laws. 
Once the governance document is 
re-opened for trustee con- 
sideration, Bromery said he hoped 
to bring up the issue of recognition 
for PAUMA. 

Bromery said one of the dangers 
of collective bargaining on college 
campuses is that traditional forms 
of governance are usually discarded 
or made impotent. 

"Everyone thought I lost my 
mind when I took up the job" of 
executive vice-president overseeing 
collective bargaining, "I want the 
Amherst campus represented in 
decisions relating to collective 
bargaining," he said. 

A drive for unionization of 

professional staff began last spring 
by the Professional Staff for 
Collective Bargaining, who hope to 
be affiliated with the Massachu- 
setts Teacher's Association, the 
same group of faculty union is 
affiliated with. The professional 
union is in no way associated with 

Outgoing administrative Officer 
Evelyn Dustin said "Whether or not 
the union becomes a reality, 
PAUMA should continue as a 
viable institution." 

Bromery agreed with those 
present that there is a strong need 
to come up with University- wide 
policies affecting personnel policies 
for professional staff, classified by 
many as "slim." 

There is no clear-cut policy on 
who qualifies as professional staff 

and who qualifies as administrators, 
he said. Policies are not stan- 
dardized between the three UMass 
campuses, either, since Amherst is 
the only campus which allows for 
multi-year contracts, he said. 

According to Bromery, faculty 
and students will be working on 
their responses to the five-year 
Puryear plan throughout the 

He told the group that academic 
planning must be completed before 
support planning begins, and that is 
the reason PAUMA has not heard 
anything from Bromery's office on 
the plan. 

The group also voted in a new 
slate of officers with Charles Lyman 
as speaker and Peter Wozniak as 
administrative officer.

Budget work goes on 

It remains to be seen how the 
Massachusetts Senate will treat the 
$4 billion plus budget the house 
submitted to them last week, a 
r.jdget which includes a $4 million 
boost fn» the Amherst campus from 
the governor's recommendation. 

According to Amherst Rep. 
J^mes G. Collins, this campus fared 
well in the house's version. Not 
only is the budget up to $72 million 
from $68 million, but the school will 
also have $400,000 freed because 
the operating costs account will not 
have to include utility deficits. 

The house, for the third straight 
year, axed UMass President Robert 
C. Wood's budget for his One 
Washington Mall office. Collins said 

a staff associate working in the 
provost's office for seven years, 
during the controversy over 
Provost Paul L Puryear's research 
with Florida State graduate student 
Juanita Clay remains unexplained. 

Auten, in a telephone interview 
last week, said she received a letter 
April 22 from Puryear assigning her 
to the office of grants and con- 
tracts, effective April 25. 

She said she is "unable to make a 
comment" about the transfer 
because "an explanation was never 


Puryear also said he could not 
discuss the transfer, since dis- 
closing "confidential personnel 
action is against the law." He did

the money allocated under the 
house's budget is enough to pay his 
rent until October. In past years, the 
senate has restored the budget for 
Wood, mainly because certain 
legislative leaders are allied with 
Wood against the governor. 

Another provision, if passed by 
the senate and signed by the 
governor, would prevent Wood 
from using state trust fund money, 
federal or gift money for staffing his 
office. Howard White, an aide to 
Wood, said the UMass President 
will reserve comment on the budget 
package until the senate acts on it. 

Residency requirements and 
teaching loads also received the 
houses' attention, specifically 
requiring faculty to teach 12 hours a 
week of undergraduate courses and 
nine 'hours a week of graduate 

Behind the Wooden door 

An amendment to the state's 
open meeting law drew fire from a 
University attorney in hearings at 
the state house last week. 

The administration is opposing 
the amendment, which would 
require all state institutions to hold 
public hearings, since the trustees 
currently go into executive session 
to discuss tenure denial appeals 
honorary degrees and collective 
bargaining — a touchy subject 
when the faculty union is under 

Transfer still unexplained 

The transfer of Bertha L. Auten, 

say, however, the transfer has "no 
relationship with the research." 
Five years work 
on five year plan? 
Provost Puryear's five-year plan 
for the Amherst campus has en- 
tered its second stage, with 
students and faculty settling down 
to work on their extensive replies. 
Chancellor Randolph W. 
Bromery says the plan will be 
compiled at this office and sent to 
the trustees during the fall. 

The plan drew heavy criticism 
from the University community 
upon its release in the spring. It 
reallocates campus resources, in an 
attempt to meet the needs of a 
changing student body. 

Jobs for Summer 
The unemployed between the 
ages of 14 and 22 may find work 
relief under the federally funded 
Comprehensive Employment and 
Training Act in Amherst. 

Various Amherst town depart- 
ments will be seeking applications 
for jobs running from June 26 to 
September 2. Additional in- 
formation can be had in the town 
manager's office, the Youth Center 
and the high school guidance 

Ding-dongs off the hook 
Three UMass students, intent on 
keeping the bells of the Old Chapel 
ringing longer than the usual hourly 
chimes, were caught by police last 
week and ordered to appear in 
Hampshire District Court. 
But charges of breaking and 

entering, and disturbing the peace, 
were dismissed against Hugh 
Parrish, David Glen and Terry 
Cowgill. Police alleged the three 
were tampering with the bells at the 
ungodly hour of 1 a.m. 
Record strike 
Talks are continuing between the 
strikers and the owners of the 
Amherst Record, a bi-weekly 
owned by Michael deSherbinin. 

The strikers netted about $280 at 
a tag sale which according to 
Andrew Marx, one of the striking 
workers, will go toward the 
publication of the weekly Off the 
Record, the strike paper. 

Last week, the strike paper, at 12 
pages, was bigger than Saturday's 
Amherst Record, which would 
seem to be cause enough for 
rtfiS_herbinin to start worrying. 

In a telephone interview, he said 
none of his workers has been 
harassed since Off the Records 
published a list of "scab" workers 
at the Record. 

Liquor is quicker 
The state Alcoholic Beverage 
Commission is expected to uphold 
the Amherst selectmen's winter 
liquor license suspension of Poor 
Richard's Discotheque. A final 
decision is expected within a few 

H. L. Chan, owner of Poor 
Richards and the adjacent South 
China Restaurant, recently ap- 
pealed to the commission, saying 
the selectman's four-day 
suspension, including a weekend 
was too harsh. 

The nightclub was allegedly 
serving liquor to minors on the 
night of January 10. 
Chain mail 
Some members of the UMass 
community have apparently joined 
together to complain about an 
anonymous chain letter, circulating 
through the campus mail. 

The June 2 Weekly Bulletin said 
authorities believe the chain 
authors are utilizing both UMass 
stationary and secretarial support 
services, causing a "nuisance" to 
its recipients. 

Although the chain is not 
condoned by UMass authorities, it 
is not entirely condemned, either. 
The bulletin sjggests the perpe- 
trators use their own resources for 
the activity, and not abuse 
University support services. 
"The Whitmore Shuffle" 
For those who went through the 
procedure to ensure that Whitmore 
would not deduct taxes from their 
paychecks, last week's check 
proved quite a surprise. 

Personnel Director Jack DeNyse 
told the Collegian that the com- 
puter which handles the paychecks 
had a malfunction due to human 
error and as a result everyone had 
taxes taken out. 

For student employees, many of 
whom were seeing their first pay- 
checks of the summer eaten away, 
satisfaction could not be had. 
DeNyse said they must file a tax 
statement with the Internal 
Revenue Service next spring to get 
their money back, or return the first 
check for re's^ii-i this vwjk.

No clear mandate yet 
on Montague site 



Alternative Energy Coalition, a 
western Massachusetts anti- 
nuclear group, dominated the floor 
for those opposing the proposed 
Montague nuclear power plant at 

Vincent O'Connor speaks 
out against the proposed 
nuclear power plant. 

the two public siting meetings held 
last week. 

Proponents with prepared 
statements disclaimed AEC 
testimony during the first hearing, 
Wednesday night, but only a few 
officials attended the Thursday 
night session. 

Both open hearings were con- 
ducted by the Energy Facilities 
Siting Council, a state agency 
responsible for overseeing the 
planning and construction of 
energy generating facilities in 
Massachusetts. This fall the council 
will help chair, with the Nuclear 
Regulatory Commission, joint 
hearings on the Montague plant. 
One source said 90 per cent of the 
council's $410,000 budget will be 
expended for the Montague 

The 300 people attending the first 
session witnessed a vicious verbal 
assault against the Clamshell 
Alliance, the anti-nuke group which 
organized the May 1 Seabrook, 
New Hampshire occupation. 

Stephen Desmond, a 25-year-old 
physicist from Hartford, Conn, 
representing the Fusion Energy 
Foundation, proponents of nuclear 
power, called Clamshell a 
"prototerrorist" group. 

Desmond claimed his accusation 
was based upon an unsigned letter 

by a Clamshell Seabrook occupier 
who "changed sides." Desmond 
did not produce supportive 
evidence at the hearing, nor has his 
group released any to the public 
since the remark, which some 
Clamshell members at the hearing 
thought was humorous. 

Environment agencies were also 
represented at the hearing. 

Robie Hubley, from the 
Easthampton Audubon Society, 
but speaking for the Connecticut 
River Watershed Council, doubted 
the safety of a plant in a rural 
setting, if it is not safe for urban 

"If it is not safe to locate a 
nuclear plant near urban areas 
where the energy is to be con- 
sumed, it is reasonable to assume a 
nuclear plant location would not be 
safe for rural cities," said Hubley. 
Similar questions about the site 
location were raised by Franklin 
County Chairperson Thomas W. 
Merrigan. He noted the two 
hospitals, 34 schools, 27 industries, 
and 37,000 people within a five-mile 
radius of the plant. 

About 170 people attended the 
Thursday night session, most of 
whom were natives of Montague. 
The 45 speakers voiced both ap- 
proval and disapproval over the 

The residents aren't scared... 


MONTAGUE - "Everybody wants to save the 
Plains. Why? It's nothing but scrub pine and beer bot- 
tles," said Earl Duncan, a Montague native, talking 
about the proposed site for the nuclear plant in 

Duncan looked up from his beer at the Bridge Cafe 
in Turners Falls last Saturday and said, "Half the 
marriages in Franklin County were conceived out 

"They shouldn't build it," he laughed. "They 
should make a dump out of it - the kids would have a 
place to play." 

Speaking more seriously, a friend of Duncan's 
called Bob, said, "I'm not that much of a radical. I 
think the town should have it (the nuclear power 
plant). I could see $2.2 billion being pumped into this 
town. It could use it." 

Down the street at the VFW bar. a Montague 
plumber raised doubts about site suitability and other 

"I'd like to know what they plan to do with the 
wastes," said Fred C. Engerman. 

Engerman said that when he used to sink borings 
on plumbing jobs for wells in Montague Plains he 
encountered water at 25 feet below ground level. 

"There's an underground lake there," Engerman 
said. "I don't see how the land can support the plant." 

"If they can find some solution to the waste 
problem though," said Engerman, "I think I'd support 

Across the bar a woman interrupted Engerman, and 
raised her voice in support of nuclear energy. 

"I've lived in Colorado and I've seen things done 
differently there," said Kitty Martel, pointing at 
Engerman. "You're sitting on progress here. You 
want to be ecology minded, you'll pay for it." 


During a stop at the Community General Store in 

E2E2 C . 6 ?i er ' tWO more residents of Montague 
talked about the possible economic effects of the 
proposed nuclear power plant. 

"I've liveo here for 24 years, and I'd hate to see it

"More people would work for construction for five 
or su years, but I don't know what's going to happen 
when work stops." **w*m 

Klrys said he doubted whether all local people 
would be to work at the site pointing to the 
current construction of a nuclear plant in Seabrook 
New Hampshire, Klaus cited "only one out of nine 

7 voted for ft, I admit it, ' 
said one Montague resident 

contractors are from New Hampshire." 

Donald Gardner, a farmer who lives with his grand- 
parents in Montague Meadows, said "if you're a big 
taxpayer, you'll want the plant." 

Gardner said he pays almost $3800 in property taxes 
for 260 acres of land which he uses to raise dairy cattle 
and grow produce. 

"What effects will it have on my farm? I don't 
know, but you gotta take a chance on it." 

"I think the older people have more sense in their 
head than the young people around here," said Gard- 
ner in reference to protesters.

for agriculture, was crazy. Whitney

Speaking without a prepared

"Think not just of the local

voted in favor of the plant," said 

State Senator John W. Olver, 0- 
Amherst, sent a legislative aide to 
the hearing because he was 
working with the state senate on 
the budget in Boston. 

Aide Donald St. Pierre read 
Olver's prepared statement which 
questioned the safety of current 
nuclear waste procedures, saying 
they "are yet to be addressed by 
tne federal government."

Lucien Desbian followed suit 
with a five-minute "guided Hindu 
meditation to allow people har-

Although the Siting Council 
chairperson Morris K. McClintock 
said the song was "a more effective 
way to communicate at a hearing,"

* The res/dents aren't scared 


A U Mass alumnus, who stopped in Montague 
Center, said a company would not invest money in an 
inefficient operation. 

"Any company today, obviously, is not philan- 
.°P* 7 lts 9 r eedy," said Norman Nash who 
stud.ed history at UMass from 73-76, after serving in 
the Air Force for 23 years. 

"It is logical to assume a company is not stupid " 
continued Nash. "It is also logical to assume 'a 
company is going to pick the most effective and 
cheapest operation." 

Nash noted the question of building a nuclear 
power plant in Montague has been on the ballot "at 

Pointing to the Grange Hall across the street, Nash 
said Montague residents had the chance to vote on 
the issue. 

"I voted for it, I admit it." 

Nash said that while nuclear power protesters serve 
a useful purpose by "raising enough hell" so that 
other people "make sure it's safe," he said the 
protesters are acting too late. 

"It's like closing the barn door after all the horses 
have escaped," said Nash. "There's already two 
nukes ,n the vicinity," he said, referring to the Ver- 
mont Yankee and Rowe facilities, both within 25 miles 
of Montague. 

"The country has been living in the nuclear age for 
30 years, ever since WWII. 

"From personal experience," said Nash, "I know 
that the government transports nuclear weapons 
overhead every day, to be overhauled at another 

Nash paused to tap his corn-cob pipe out against 

his palm, refilling it leisurely. 

"You can't pull in your neck like a turtle and ignore 

he rest of the world," he said. "You can't have a 

totally pessimistic outlook toward everything new or 

nothing will be accomplished. You either grow' or 

deteriorate. a 

One of the areas that might be affected by the 
presence of the nuclear plant would be the Bitzer 
btate Fish Hatchery on Hatchery Road in Montague 

The hatchery itself is deep in thick woods and the 
grounds are covered with a soft blanket of pine 
needles and shade. Currently the hatchery uses 800 

9 cTJi 2 of t6r 8 minUte for trout raisin 9 operations. 

Cecil H Ellison, the superintendent of the hatchery 
claimed the affect of a great number of people moving 
into the immediate area would end in negative results 
for the hatchery. 

"Eventually the water supply is going to be af- 

J c a ? c d ' e "!! d - ,"° nce the water °. ualit y goes down

Ellison scraped at some varnish on the 18 foot 
canvas and wood canoe he was re-finishing. 

I ma little hard nosed about this - I'm a country 
boy. You start building homes you should have 
planned. You can't just start shoving buildings in here 
and there, he added. 

"Look at Man. He's going straight out. You can't 
stop him. How're you going to be able to go back to 
the horse and buggy now? You ask anyone on the 
street if they want to give up their modern con- 
veniences — no one does.

According to department 
spokesmen, the George H. Barber 
fund, which provides all the 
scholarship funding, was rapidly 
drying up. 

Mclnerney attributed It to in- 
flation and a rainy football season 
two years ago. The Barber fund 
receives all gate receipts and profits 
from televised or tournament 

Susan Howard, a student who 
did an inquiry into the Athletic 
Dept. for the Student Center for 
Educational Research, comes to a 
different conclusion, however. 

Howard, who studied the 
department over the period of 1973 
to 1975, found the football team 
eating away the largest chunk of 
trust fund monies and coaches 
salaries when compared to the 
other teams. 

The annual costs of fielding the 
team have been estimated at 
$410,000. The team, even in 1968, 
when it made a televised bowl 
appearance, brought in onlv 

The team's appearance on 
eastern television against Harvard 
last year netted them $156,000. 

Howard concluded that UMass 
should forget about fielding highly 
competitive teams, and con- 
centrate on sports for the whole 
student body. 

Uean of Physical Education 
David C. Bischoff said the 
department is under trustee 
mandate to field teams 
'representative" of UMass, the 
largest state institution in New 

Bischcoff said the department 
tries to arrange schedules with 
teams in New England, and only 
rarely goes out of the area to 
compete on a regular basis. 

The problems with the current 
batch of mediocre teams lies with 

A number of other schools offer 
more c/ams in aid than we do, he 
said, so we are not "able to attract 
the same calibre athlete. 

Then, the general public expects 
us to do well against them. 

Arthur Elkins, who chairs the 
Athletic Council, says UMass 
has bad press in Boston. 

"Everyone thinks its a party 
school," he said "because some 
guy writes a story about Southwest 
and it gets in the Globe."

Rutgers exec new CC director 


The new director for the Campus 
Center is expected to sign his two- 
year contract sometime this week 
for about $25,000 per year. 

William Harris, formerly with 
Ru'gers University in New Jersey 
is expected to arrive in Amherst this 
week and begin work in early July 

Money wasn't the only attraction 
tor Harris, who on a previous visit 
to UMass said he found the campus 
to be exciting and comprehensive. 

A selection committee composed 

of students and administrators 
chose five applicants to interview, 
of which three were designated as 

Harris, in a telephone interview 
last week, said he found "a lot of 
problems" with the Campus Center 
complex, especially lack of lounge 
space. He said he was also 
disturbed at the number of leaks in 
the building and found the Com- 
muter Lounge unattractive. 

He said his overriding concern as 
director was to make the many 

services the building has to offer 
available to the majority of the 
student body. He said this was a 
problem area under present 

Although by his own admission 
some people at Rutgers are happy 
to see him go, Harris said he felt 
very comfortable on the campus 
where he could enjoy the variety of 
cultural activities offered there. 

He will take over the duties of 
acting Director Bud Wilkes. 

to the Athletics Dept. does not 
represent a huge percentage. But 
Elkins says it's hard to get alumni 
interested in coming out to see a 
gymnastics meet, although they 
will often come to football. 

Elkins said the council has in- 
formally chatted about setting up a 
Booster's Club for the UMass 
teams, but nothing has been 

The Athletic Department 
currently has several sources for its 

One of these is student fee 
money, which goes into buying 
equipment and support services for 
athletes. The current fee is $30 per 

Another source is the Barber 
fund, used for scholarships. 

The third is the state, which 
brings the total departmental 
budget over $1 million. 

For the other sports, this 
represents- a chance to "restore 
some dignity" to their programs 
according to Elkins. 

He said he hopes the council can 
now look forward to getting a new 
place for the basketball and hockey 
teams to play. 

The University must also think 
about where it's going to house the 
new women's programs, he said. 
Elkins said one of the reasons the. 
council didn't go ahead with plans 
for a Booster club was that they 
wanted to see what would happen 
with tuition waivers. 

"Ninety-five point nine per cent 
of alumni don't know it was passed 
he said. 

Martus said the money alumni 
give to the sports program could go 
to other activities on campus. 

He said the trustee vote was a 
"perpetuation of sexism," since the 
tuition waivers will most likely be 
targeted to men's athletics. 

"It's summertime," he said of 
course they passed it when 
students were away on vacation. 

According to Martus, the 
trustees cannot restore the 
counselor's tuition waiver since it is 
directly against trustee policy, 
which bases the waivers on 
financial need. 

But the athletic waivers will "be 
going straight to the football and 
basketball teams," he said, "You 
watch, you watch." 

Woodbury: 'Students here 
are better than they think' 


"UMass students are better than 
they think they are," said Robert L 
Woodbury, acting Vice-Chancellor 
for Student Affairs. 

"I call it the psychology of 
'second rateness,' " continued 

He explained that for many high 
school seniors, UMass does not top 
their college list. Financial con- 
ditions, he said, force many high 
school seniors to reluctantly attend 

"They came here, but preferred 
other 'prestigious' schools," 
Woodbury said, "The UMass 
students tend to downgrade 
themselves. They are far better. It's 
a very peculiar phenomenon." 

Students at public universities in 
other states, said Woodbury, do 
not rate their college behind neigh- 
boring private institutions. 
Woodbury added the residents of 
other states also do not downgrade 
their state university system. 

Woodbury said he attributes the 
public college outlook in 
Massachusetts to the state's 
history "dominated by private 

The Boston media and the 
governor, Michael S. Dukakis said 
Woodbury, contribute to the poor 
in-state public image of UMass. 

Pointing out Dukakis' education 
at Swarthmore College and Har- 
vard Law School, Woodbury 
describes Dukakis as an "elitist", 
with "no respect or understanding 
of quality public higher education." 
There exists in Massachusetts 
higher education a "class system," 
he said, which would be "very 
hard" to overcome. 

One way to possibly alter the 
widespread low public opinion of 
UMass, is to "try to help people 
look at the facts" about the 
resources here, he said. 

Woodbury cited the r cent 
national acceptance of a re lished 
biography of Civil War ',- sident 
Abraham Lincoln, wr.ttdn by 
UMass history Prof. Stephen 
Oates, to support his argument. 

"The resources of this University 
are infinitely better than other 
Massachusetts colleges," contends 
Woodbury. "The quality of UMass 
faculty is infinitely better, and so 
are the students." 

But Woodbury added he does 
not know how one could change 
the "zoo behavior" and "beer 
guzzling" images many of the 
public have of UMass. 

He said, for example, there is "no 
evidence" proving UMass students 
drink alcohol more than Amherst 
College students. 

"Amherst College students may 
even drink more," Woodbury said 
jokingly. Woodbury is an Amherst 
College alumnus, class of 1960. 

Reflecting upon his past ten 
months as vice-chancellor of 
student affairs, Woodbury said he 
has enjoyed the job a lot, and 
probably will for awhile, although 
he has declined to apply for the 
position on a permanent basis. 

Woodbury said a candidate will not 
fill the position on a permanent 
basis before January, 1978, and 
possibly not until June of that same 

Woodbury said he has met "a lot 
of people I didn't know," and has 
learned "a lot of things" that "90 
per cent of the faculty" may not 

"The University is a lot like a 
city," said Woodbury, "Academics 
are only a piece of what's going on. 

"I learned a lot about budgets 
and fees from students," he said, 
adding he "was never verbally 
abused by a student, but I was by a 
faculty, whatever that means." 

Woodbury said a new person in 
an administration should be "a 
different person with a different 
attitude and different personality" 
than established administrators. 

deal with other administrators and 
trustees," he said, and also be able 
to "mesh with the constituency." 
Finally, the growing financial 
aspect of the job requires 
management ability, Woodbury 
said. His office currently has a $30 
million budget, and is responsible 
for 900 full time employees. 

In addition, Woodbury said a 
new vice chancellor must be "open 
to changes." In the next 10 years, 
said Wooobury, the administration 
must learn to be "responsive to the 
handicap citizen." 

The student body will be 
eventually composed of many older 
students, he said, in reference to 
recent trends showing the growin , 
number of older students entering 

The student body is much more 
diverse than it was 10 years M 
he said. 

'I learned a lot 
about budgets and 
fees from students' 

Robert L. Woodbury 

"Every organization needs a 
fresh individual with different views 
of the situation," he explained. 

The new vice-chancellor should 
have "a commitment to education. 
It should be the highest priority." 
Related to this commitment, said 
Woodbury, the vice chancellor of 
student affairs should like people 
the age of students. 

Political skills are a valuable 
talent to have, said Woodbury. The 
vice chancellor "must be able to 

The consequent age diversity will 
produce different problems, 
Woodbury said. "Counseling for 18 
and 19 year olds will be different 
than dealing with the personal 
problems of 35 year old students." 
Student Government 
Association co-president Pinky 
Batiste recently called Woodbury a 
"warm person who listens to the 

"He never has his door closed " 
she said. I've really enjoyed working, 
with him." 

Batiste said several students 
have talked with Woodbury, urging 
him to apply for the permanent vice 
chancellor position. 

Woodbury, who said he had 
informed the UMass administration 
last September that he would only 
fill the position on an interim basis 
said during this interview a three-' 
f o-five year commitment is needed 
• or the vice chancellor's job. This 
time period, said Woodbury, would 
be "a deviation from my real career 
and goals in the academic area." 



Woodbury opens in London 

Three UMass academic programs will receive international 
attention this week when acting Vice-Chancellor for Academic 
Affairs Robert L. Woodbury delivers a speech in England 

Woodbury is attending the Third International Convention on 
Improvement of University Teaching. 

His speech, entitled "Organizational Change and the Im- 
provement of University Teaching," cites Project 10, University 
Without Walls and the Global Survival Freshman Year Program as 
successful stimulating academic innovation. 

Woodbury says these programs "engaged the sustained and 
vital intellectual and value concerns of University faculty. 

"This catalytic role is critical to creating the contexts! the ex- 
periments, and the new possibilities that will support the individual 
reflection and rethinking that lies at the heart of good and improved 
teaching," he said.

Alfred A. Knopf New York 
298 pps., illustrated; $25 

Reviewed by E. Patrick McQuaid 
There is a splendid exhibition at 
the Helios Gallery on 18 East 67th 
Street in New York at the moment. 
It is a pictorial compendium of Paris 
celebrities from the early 1850's by 
Gaspard- Felix Tournachon, better 
known as "Nadar". A number of 
his prints are also available at the 


Smith College collection in North- 
ampton but if you are not an avid 
gallery-goer, an equally magnificent 
collection has been released by the 
Alfred A. Knopf publishers entitled 

The book is mostly a recording of 
some 80 subjects including the 
most well-known names of the era 
in theatre, art, music, and literature. 
It is well put together, though the 
biographical side of the volume 
appears rather supplemental, yet 
overall the text by Nigel Gosling 
shows a great understanding of his

subject and intense interest In the 
lively period in which Nadar lived 
This was Paris of the 19th century 
the Paris of Victor Hugo,' 
Baudelaire, Manet, Proust, and 
Rossini, a world of intense genius 
and energy. 

Somehow Nadar has 

mysteriously captured and 
preserved this world for us. He 
declared in 1856: "The theory of 
photography can be learnt in an 
hour and the elements of practicing 
it in a day.. .What cannot be learnt is 
the sense of light, an artistic feeling 
for the effects of varying luminosity 
and combinations of it, the ap- 
plication of this or that effect to the 
features which confront the artist in 

"What can be learnt even less is 
the moral grasp of the subject — 
that instant understanding which, 
puts you in touch with the model, 
helps you to sum him up, guides 
you to his habits, his ideas and his 
character and enables you to 
produce, not an indifferent 
reproduction, a matter of routine or 
accident such as any laboratory 
assistant could achieve, but a really 
convincing and sympathetic 
likeness, an intimate portrait " 
(page 37) 

What is more remarkable is that 
Nadar did not take up an interest in 
photography until his mid 30's, 

during the winter of 1854-55. He 
was the DaVinci of his era, an 
accomplished cartoonist and 
journalist, a Bohemian writer- 
illustrator, an advocate of the Polish 
liberation cause for which he was 
arrested and sentenced to a week 
of hard labor in a German coal 
mine, and an unsuccessful career in 
espionage came to a swift end. 

Gosling writes of him: "A man of 
large and emotional judgements, he 
was nevertheless on the right side 
in every' issue of his time — a 
patriot without prejudice, a 
revolutionary without hate, a 
romantic without remote ideals 

who was notoriously on Christian- 
name terms with everybody in 
sight. He made a genuine con- 
tribution to aeronautics through his 
gift of imagination and enterprise, 
and in his photographs of others he 
left his own memorial. The tribute 
of his friend de Banville still rings 
true. 'He did not always think 
straight; but he thought widely and 
he thought well. He deserves your 
complete affection.' " 

Nadar was also known for his 
experimenting with aerial 
photography. He made several 
flights over l*aris in balloons and 
one time made a crash landing, 
fracturing his leg. He later put his 
ballooning experience to military 
use during the war with Prussia in 

The portraits reveal to us how 
very much "in touch", as Nadar 
said, he was with his models. They 
are interesting enough for their 
subject matter, nonetheless for 
their superb photographic quality. 
Some of the staunch. Napoleon- 
posed subjects look as though their 
image would have cracked the lens. 

Nadar also contains photographs 
from Tournachon's brother Adrien 
and his son Paul. The book is 
divided into portraits by personality 
and later portraits by their

If Roxy Music were still alive in 
1977, and if they had consistently

more pleasure than anything 
they've done in years. Start with 
these and then get their first two

When is a sport not a sport? 

JUNE 8. 1977 

...Quick, come up with 10 good 
reasons why anyone would pay 
United States currency, cold hard 
cash, actual money, to watch the 
Indy 500. There aren't too many 
more boring things on the planet 
than watching cars race around a 
track what seems like a zillion 
times. People should go, if at all, to 
watch the final lap. Unless, of 
course, they are sadistic, and don't 
want to miss any crackups. That's a 
different story. 

On the topic of bores, how can 
television networks waste their time 
and the nation's energy sources, by 
putting golf on the tube? Talk about 
boring!! Oh sure, there are bound 
to be some exciting shots (maybe 
not exactly exciting), but most of 
the time it's dull, with golfers at- 
tempting to make the 'best dressed' 
list of 1977. Sort of like people who 
get all dressed up to go to church. 

On the subject of golf, I fail to see 
the rationale behind calling it a 
sport (sorry, golf lovers.) According 

to the dictionary, sport is defined as 
a game, recreation or pastime 
involving physical exercise. Yet 
another dictionary states sports as 
a game involving individual and 
physical skill on which money is 

Such vague definitions can't be 
of much help in trying to figure out 
exactly what category golf falls 
into. Betting on who does better in 

or enjoyable activity. ..for one's own 
pleasure or satisfaction." Bicycling 
is a hobby, a recreational activity, 
similar to fishing, etc. Understand? 
Good. Now moving on to more 
important matters. note, 
bowling is not a sport either. 

People are now beginning to 
question where Umass' sports 
program is headed. Though at this 
present time it is mere speculation, 

'Golf is a hobby, like collecting stamps' 

a batting cage against a machine 
would be considered a sport. Or 
playing electronic baseball for a 
case of beer in the Campus Center 
could be construed as sport. 
Naturally these aren't sporting 

So what is a sport? What are 

Golf is a hobby, like collecting 
stamps. Hobby — "an interesting 

I'd contend it is going nowhere. 
Money is flowing into a program 
which really isn't showing signs of 
improvement over the past years. 
Though the Minutemen 
basketball team played better 
opposition this season in the likes 
of Rutgers, Duquesne, etc., many 
big games were played in 
Springfield's Civic Center. One 
wonders exactly why students are 

forced to pay an athletic fee, and 
then are confronted with shelling 
out more money if they want to see 
a good basketball game against a 
decent opponent. Letting students 
see UNH, U Maine and Vermont 
play in Curry Hicks Cage, but 
scheduling UMass' home games in 
Springfield's gym to make money is 
bogus (true, no one would pay to 
see U Mass- U Maine if it was played 
in Springfield.) Either students 
should get free rides to the game, 
or an optional athletic fee. Or no 
away' home games. Somebody's 
getting screwed. And as usual, it's 
the student. 

And if you think about it, it's 
amazing not only does this school 
not have its own hockey rink (nor 
will in the near future) but why 
hasn't someone come up with a 
plan to utilize more often, the 
cement bowl' commonly known as 
Alumni Stadium? It's strange how 
this Stadium was allowed to be 

built, knowing it would only be 
used eight times a year. The genius 
who allowed such a move 
should've come up with a cheap 
plan on how to dome the stadium, 
and make it available for basketball 
and hockey too. 

I dunno. I guess this is just a 
typical move here at UMass. 

That wraps up this column, 
going out to shoot some golf.

Softballers set best record yet 

The UMass Softball and baseball 
■earns each finished their seasons 
with winning averages with the 
Minutewomen winding up their 
schedule with a 16-2 record, the 
best yet for UMass softball. 

Under first-year coach Diane 
Thompson, the softball team had 
both a seven-game and a nine- 
game winning streak, their only 
losses came from Bridgewater 
State and Springfield Colleqe. 
^ Standouts on the team included: 
Sue DiRocco of Brighton, the 
team's MVP who led the team in 
batting with a 429; Gail Matthews, 
senior pitcher and co-captain 
batting .321; and Sue Peters a 
freshman from Southbridge, who 
plays left field when not pitching 
and managed to rack up an un- 
defeated record of 6-0 while battina 

The MVP honors for the baseball 
team was given to Ed Skribiski a 
sophomore infielder from Sun- 
derland who led the squad in hitting 
with an average of .357. The team 
finished 20-17. Skribiski also tied 
me school record for most hits in a 
season with 50. 

Skribiski also had amazing 
success in the stolen base 

department, completing 12 of 16 

Freshman outfielder Mike McEvilly 
from Clinton, was the only other 
regular starter to bat over .300, with 
an average of .310. He batted in 27 
runs tor the season. 

Runner John McGrail received 
the Eastern Collegiate Athletic 
Conference Merit Award, given to a 
graduating senior with an out- 
standing academic and athletic 
record. McGrail, an English major 
with a 3.72 cum, not only is the 
Yankee Conference record holder 
in the three mile run, but also has 
the fastest six mile and 10,000 
meters "of any New England 
collegian in track and field. McGrail 
received All-American recognition 
in cross country in 1975. He plans 
to enter law school in the fall. 

Nancy O'Neal, who participated 
m basketball, tennis and lacrosse at 
UMass received the outstanding 
senior athletic award, as well as a 
Three Sport Senior Award. O'Neal, 
of Scituate, was elected co-captain 
of all three squads. At the present 
time, she holds almost all of the 
women's basketball season and 
career scoring records at UMass. 

Dennis Fenton, a three year 

letterman in football, and a four 
vear letterman in wrestling, 
received the Samual Crossman 
Memorial Trophy, presented an- 
nually to a senior who must have 
received varsity letters in two sports 
while achieving an above average 
academic record. 

Diane Perry received the Two 
Sport Senior Award, having let- 
tered in both track and swimming. 

Christine Basile also received a

Ten years ago asparagus fields in 
New Jersey were hit with an in- 
fectious fungus growth called 
fjsarium that attacked the roots 
then gradually spread into the 
crown and eventually killed the 
entire plant. It was a slow process, 
taking a decade to work its way 
through the entire crop but today 
there is virtually no asparagus 
grown in that area. 

Fusarium has found a new home 
in the fields of Hadley, "Asparagus 
Capital of the World", where the 
bulk of native Massachusetts 
asparagus is grown. Hadley's 
reputation for producing some of

the finest asparagus in the country 
is at stake. According to John 
Howell, vegetable and tobacco 
specialist for the Hampshire -3 
County Extension Service no one j 
will be finacially ruined by the 5 
blight. £ 

"Most of the growers," he said, ■ 
"are part-time farmers with other 
incomes. The full-time farmers have 
other crops so no one, as far as I 
know, relies soley on asparagus for 
their living." 

Howell explained that when an 
asparagus bed is not producing 
most farmers will plow it up and 
begin a different vegetable. 

More than 80 per cent of the 
1,100 acres of native asparagus 
were grown in Hadley in 1965. 
Three years ago the statewide crop 
level decreased to 470 acres and 
continues to drop. Today more 
than 200 acres of asparagus in 
Hadley are suffering from the 

Agricultural scientists are 
working at the University's 
Waltham Experiment Station under 
Dr. William J. Manning studying 
the different varieties of fusarium 
and gathering information from 
both the New Jersey and the 
Hadley situation. Work is also being

done on the University farm in 
nearby S. Deerfield. 

Howell tells us that Manning will 
be moving into the area sometime 
this month to continue his studies 
and will be experimenting with soil 
treatments next September at the 
Amherst campus. 

In S. Deerfield some 34 varieties 
of asparagus seed are being studied 
for resistance but experts have not 
yet come up with any marketable 

Local farmers and roadside stand 
owners were hesitant to discuss the 

problem with reporters. One 
woman insisted she had no 
problems at all and one farmer 
stated, "I've got nothing to say to 
anybody. I told the University all 
about it. They took some, and 
they've done nothing about it!" 

One reason that testing takes so 
long is that the asparagus itself 
cannot be harvested in one year. 
During the first year in the fall, 
seeds are extracted from the fern's 
red berries, washed and set to dry 
in the sun. They are stored until the 
following spring when they are 

planted. A year later they grow into 
small ferns that are dug up and 
replanted in trenches some two feet 
apart from one another. Three more 
years of tender care and they would 
be ready for the first harvest. The 
field should be good for fifteen 
more years. 

Still another problem is that there 
may be more than one variety of 
fusarium attacking the Hadley 
fields. Howell said that there may 
be two, possibly three types at 
work but did not believe that any 
more would be moving in.

Cartoons find way to 
Crab tree walls 

Peace, the recently completed Turcotte master- 

If you're one of the many 
UMass students who are at that 
awkward stage of a "second 
childhood" filled with Saturday 
morning hangovers which 
prevent you, one way or the 
other, from watching Pink 
Panther cartoons; or if you're 
craving for the latest Thor 
comic book at Augies, but can't 
afford it because your last 
quarter was spent elsewhere 
one Friday night then visit the 
fourth floor of Crabtree dor- 

Along the walls are painted 
nine cartoon characters: Thor, 
Peace from the movie 
"Wizards," Richie Rich, Bugs 
Bunny, Spider Man, Pink 
Panther, Daffy Duck, Snoopy 
and Woodstock, and Yosemite 

The idea to paint the 
characters came about five 
weeks ago, said Kevin C 
Tuicotte, who painted most of 
the characters. 

Turcotte, who just graduated 
Bachelor of Arts in Jour- 
nalism—English, said the idea 
came one Saturday night when 
he and his friends in Crabtree 
were sitting around with 
nothing to do. 

The dormitory, he said, paid 
for the paint and other supplies. 
Turcotte said he was not the 
only person to "chalk up" the 
characters and paint them by 
following cartoon book 

He was, however, the only . 
one to remain after graduation 
to complete the work. Turcotte 
even delayed a cross country 
trip until he finished the 
paintings, a task completed on

Smoke, smoke, smoke that cigarette 


"Eh-um. excuse me. Oo you have 
a match by any chance?" 

"Yeh, uh, I think so. Yup, here 
you go. Say, could I bum a 

"Sure thing. By the way my 
name is " 

Many strangers meet over a 
simple sharing of a cigarette break. 
But what is good for the social life 
is bad for the heart and lungs. 
Damage done to the body is well- 
documented and warnings by the 
Surgeon General appear on every 
package. Anyone has the choice 
whether to smoke or not. But what 
of the choice of the non-smoker? 
The smoke from a cigarette con- 
tains almost twice the tar and 
nicotine of an inhaled cigarette. 
One cigarette contaminates the air 
for about twelve minutes. 

— A health survey in Detroit 
homes concluded that smokers' 
children were sick more frequently 
than non-smokers' children. 

— Smoking doubles the risk of 
heart disease, can cause lung 
cancer, makes oeople look older, 
and can miscarriages to 
women whu <e. 

These are s ie of the risks that 
smokers subject themselves to, but 
is it fair to include the non-smoker 
in these risks? Some people are 
doing something to protect the 

The Massachusetts Legislature 
enacted a no-smoking and 
prohibited smoking area ban in 
1975 (MGL Chpt. 270, sect. 20). 
This includes all cars of the MBTA, 
museums, planes, trains, libraries 
and other public facilities, and 
orders signs placed in conspicious 
areas to alert smokers and non- 
smokers. The Fire Department also 
has similar laws banning smoking 
for fire purposes (GLC 148,sect. 
10). Improper use of smoking 
materials still contribute the highest 
percentage of all fires which include 

At UMass, a movement is un- 
derway to protect the people who 
do not smoke. Paul Berger, from 
the Coalition for Environmental 
Quality, has released a petition to 
various groups and committees for 
approval of smoking bans and 
restrictions. It has met favor with all 
of the major governing bodies on 
campus and many of the councils, 
and health groups. This fall, Berger 
hopes to bring the petition to the 
trustees and Chancellor Bromery. 
Berger said, "The health of an 
individual is more important than 
the pleasure of a smoker. We are 
not attempting to abolish smoking 
on campus, but rather to reduce it 
in congested areas." 

Project Pulse conducted a survey 

in Sept. 1976 which concluded that 
78 per cent of the respondents do 
obey no-smoking signs. 87 per cent 
of the people quizzed said they will 
put out a cigarette if someone is 
bothered by it. 

The most effective form of 
persuading smokers to stop has 
come from peer pressure. Non- 
smokers who ask others not to 
smoke at the table or sitting next to 
them in class, confirm to the 
smoker that the odor and habit 
itself, is offensive. Use of the floor 
and dinner plates as ash trays is 
unsanitary and infringing upon the 
environmental comfort of the 
people who enjoy and take pleasure 
in their surroundings. 

With" all of the health problems 
associated with tobacco, you 
would think that the rate of usage 
would go down. But the contrary is 
true and advertising is one 
significant factor involved. The 
cigarettes industry spends more on 
advertising each year than any 
other industrial conglomerate, $194 
million in 1966, besting the 
automobile advertising by some 60 
million dollars. 

So think about how mass per- 
suasion is cutting into the health 
and life of your friends and family, 
then, think about your own life. It is 
worth taking a good look at.

That time again 



Amherst, in the summertime, 
with the bulk of the student 
population on vacation, is almost 
just another small New England 
town, except that the factory 
workers in a typical small New 
England town would not support a 
book store like Logos, which has a 
sign in its entrance way an- 
nouncing, "We do not carry any 
books in the following areas: 
science fiction, travel, occult or 
astrology, nature, gardening, self 
help." Despite a poster of com- 
mrade Lenin in the window and a 
large Marxist studies selection, thev 
are bourgeois intellectual snobs. 

Misfortunes of misfortunes: the 
Bluewall is closed for the summer. 
However, the Drake, in town, is a 
worthy bar, and is no doubt 
benefitting from the Bluewall's 

It is regrettable that this year's 
Toward Tomorrow Fair lacks the 
variety and contrast of speakers 
and organizations that enlivened 
and spiced up last year's fair. 
Speakers ranged from radical 
feminist activist Florence Kennedy 
to anti-feminist Joyce Davidson of 
the Total Woman Organization, 
from Republican congressman 
Silvio 0. Conte to Communist Party 
U.S.A. Presidential candidate Gus 
Hall (the Communist party's Hubert 
Humphrey), from Zero Population 
Growth to Mass. Citizens for Life, 
from the Flat Earth Society to 
Stewart Brand, founder of the 
Whole Earth Catalogue. There were 
solar fried hamburgers and sub- 

sistance farmer-vegetarian-writer 
Scott Nearing (reappearing this 
year) declaring his horror at watch- 
ing a film of pigs being butchered 
because he didn't like seeing pigs 
being treated "as if they were 
inhuman," at which point a pig 
farmer in the audience stormed out 
of the room. 

This year, however, the speakers 
will be the usual environmentalists, 
educators, health experts, a 
sprinkling of political theorists and 
politicians, few, if any of whom 
would disagree widely with each 
other, and wind and solar energy 
exhibitors (if it isn't windless and 

The following sanctimonious 
questions are from a job application

Deerfield. "What is your diet?" i.e., 
are you a non-smoking vegetarian?

necessarily matter, but everyone 
working there is NSV.) "What is 
most important to you?" (Correct

I was about 20 feet up a ladder 
painting the family house when it 
arrived in the mail. Well, I know 
how I always coolly claim to friends 
that grades are really of no concern 
to me — after all, I know I'm 
learning, so who cares what little 
letters appear on that yellow sheet? 

But of course I was climbing 
down the ladder pretty fast when 
the mail truck pulled out, and 

to keep OSCAR occupied during 
the off months. First, grades ought 
to show us just how well we are 
learning — or at least how well the 
professors think we're learning. 
Second, they ought to show others 
(including parents and prospective 
employer.;) how we are doing. Then 
again, the average cum at UMass is 
about 2.9 - that's a "B" — which 
seems to indicate that either we're 
all rather bright or that grades don't

tearing the envelope open as 
quickly as my sweaty fingers could 
manage the task. The result was a 
bit anti-climactic... my Cumulative 
Quality Point Average (or cum for 
short) hadn't changed by even a 
hundredth of a point, leading me to 
wonder if it had been worthwhile 
attending school at all last 
semester. Perhaps it just indicated 
what a consistent student I am. 

At any rate, the grade report's 
arrival was a nice break from the 
monotony of summer unem- 
ployment, as there are so many 
things to read on a UMass report 
card. The row of numbers at the 
bottom has special significance, but 
only to those in the know — un- 
wary parents might be duped into 
believing that the truly important 
number appears under "total 
semester points", or perhaps 
"course no". 

Even those of us who can explain 
the significance of each digit that 
appears on the report are prone to 
wondering why it is that we're put 
thr djgh this semi-annual torture, or 
wi si such usually pleasant folks 
suddenly develop a sadistic gleam 
in their eyes as they innocently 
query, "Aw. let's get it over with — 
what was you cum?" 

Some of us even experience 

e sacrilegious moments of 

asking why the hell we have to get 

any grades at all. There are reasons, 

of course, beyond the obvious need 

actually tell anyone very much. 

Obviously, there are a number of 
things grades can't possibly show, 
such as attitude, native intelligence, 
favorite color, and some others. 
What they can show, when 
determined fairly and accurately, is 
how well a student's achievement 
measures up with a professor's 
prior expectations of students in 
general. Just what that means 
varies considerably between 
professors and depends on what 
the individual professor's goals in 
teaching are. It's laughable that 
grades all end up as the average of 
a bunch of numbers when the 
criteria instructors use in grading 
may range from judging how well a 
student can solve a business 
problem to how much the student's 
racial awareness has improved. The 
kinds of judgements made are 
generally value-based and thus 
cannot be expected to offer any 
objective picture of how much is 
being learned. 

So why is it, then, that some of 
us consistently do so well while 
others seem doomed to the 
doldrums of sub-par cums? The 
standard answer is that some of us 
are simply more intelligent 
(whatever that means) than others. 
And if one defines intelligence as 
the ability to get good grades, well, 
I can't argue with that circular logic. 
Still, there is some validity to the 
claim. Getting good grades is sort 

of a game — a game where the 
student tries to figure out what the 
professor wants and then attempts 
to give it to her or him. People who 
are good at the game get good 
grades — and it is certainly a form 
or facet of intelligence to be good 
at games. 

But we all know there are many 
intelligent people who aren't very 
proficient at games — and that 
might easily include the grades 
game. Perhaps it could be said that 
the people who do best at the game 
of grades shall also do best at the 
game of life, since they will know 
best how to live up to their 
superiors' expectations. 

No matter what kind of society 
one lives in, it is reasonable to 
expect that there must be some 
method for deciding which in- 
dividuals will perform best in which 
fields, since any society's demand 
for high-energy physicists or an- 
cient Greek historians is necessarily 
limited. In our society, that method 
is called grading (at least for the 
younger portion of the population), 
and it seems to accomplish its task 
rather admirably. 

Grading developed as a means of 
reinforcing the social order, as it 
generally sorted out those members 
of society who best fit that order 
and put them into positions of 
responsibility. But grading in the 
hands of people with different 
values could and would result in a 
considerably different social order. 

While many choose to criticize 
grades on the grounds of their 
competitiveness, it cannot be 
denied that they serve the 
necessary purpose of allocating 
human resources on the basis of a 
given values system. The numbers 
mean very little until we look to see 
what's behind them. And what's 
behind them is a professor and 
what he or she believes — no more, 
no less.

mer Collegian welcomes all

UMass wants its money back 


UMass officials have been 
handling National Direct Student 
Loans as any loan company would. 

They want the money paid back. 

Barbara Fischer, the first person 
UMass has hired to insure the 
payment of these loans, along with 
smaller short term loans and tuition 
bills, said in a recent interview 
different methods are used to 
collect loans, including collection

former students. 

At UMass, $173,000 of the 17- 
year-old, $9.5 million program, has 
yet to be paid back. But Fischer, 
with the aid of two nationwide 
collection agencies, is working on 
the figure. 

Fischer said she would like to 
employ the court system for 
collecting loans, but various red 
tape has prevented this action. 

The person responsible for 
representing UMass in legal 
procedures, said Fischer, is Sidney 
Myers, the legal counselor to the 
Amherst chancellor. Since Myers 
cannot ac-

under the

she has

state attorney

and additional billing for the costs 
incurred during the "unpleasant" 

Most students, said Fischer, need 
only be told financial benefits to 
future UMass students depend 
upon faithful payments of the loan. 
Although UMass has always 
received additional funds from the 
federal government annually, 
Fischer said "level funding" could 
become a reality by fiscal year 1979. 
All the more reason, said Fischer, to 
make sure loaned money finds its 
way back into the "revolving door". 

A former student, said Fischer, 
has nine months to begin payment. 
If the student carries less than six 
credits, or leaves the school for an 
interim to work, the loan, with three 
per cent interest, should be repaid. 

The loan is designed to aid 
students in their studies, not full 
time employment, she said. 

For former students unable to 
meet the standard payment in- 
stallation, Fischer said individual

Since taking on the job three 
years ago, Fischer said she has 
watched the UMass delinquency 
rate drop steadily, to its June 1976 
level of 12.6 per cent. The Office of 
Education would like to see a ten 
per cent level at all schools who 
give out the loans. 

The Washington bureaucrats 
apparently have cause to request 
strict collection procedures. More 
than $173 million has been lost in

Fischer said that when a student 
with a loan leaves UMass, an "exit 
interview" is held between the 
student and Fischer. At this time, 
Fischer said the procedures for 
paying the loan are explained, with 
an added reminder that deliberate

However, it is up to the former

Student union 
nearing reality 



♦ ••news lines... 


A core group of students who 
have been involved in student 
government and its related 
agencies are now in the process of 
hammering out a new and unique 
system of governance which could 
make UMass the first college or 
university in the nation to have a 
student body organized as a union. 

The effort is largely in response 
to the faculty' 3 vote to unionize last 
spring, with much of the talk at the 
three hour "summit meetings", 
held each Monday, Wednesday and 
Friday, revolving around the 
student's place in a unionized 

The students, including the 
Student Government Association 
(SGA) co- presidents and speaker of 
the student senate, will ask the 
senate in the fall to approve what 
amounts to a reorganization of 
student government based on a 
union model. 

Although the group has yet to 
finalize a form for the new 
government, which will be called a 
federation or association, most 
proposals call for both dormitory 
and academic councils providing 
• he basic ingredients from which a 
"contract" will be "negotiated" 
with the administration. 

Various proposals call for higher 
level "assemblies" which would 
coordinate the smaller contracts, 
such as the running of a dorm or 
the amount of office hours 
professors in the Faculties of Arts 
and Sciences would be required to 

The completed "contract" would 

be brought before the ad- 
ministration by a coordinating 
committee or some designated 

Other plans call for the creation 
of a Third World assembly or a 
Non-Traditional Student assembly. 

While the 20 or so persons at- 
tending the meetings do not speak 
of reorganized collective bargaining 
rights with the administration, that 
possibility is clearly in line at some 
future point. 

The "summit" conferences mark 
the most recent and serious at- 
tempt to form a student union. The 
Student Organizing Project, which 
is providing much of the know-how 
for the proposal, was originally 
formed in 1973 under the auspices 
of the Student Action Committee. 

The SGA has also founded the 
Student Center for Educational 
Research to provide information to 
the organizers, the Legal Services 
Office providing legal counsel to 
students, the Credit Union and a 
host of student-run businesses and 

In past years, the organizing 
project called for the recognition of 
union rights as a primary goal. Last 
spring, howevei, a new philosophy 
emerged which called for the 
formulation of a union before at- 
tempting official recognition. Until 
the union is recognized, it will serve 
the same role as student govern- 
ment does now, but with its em- 
phasis at the dorm or department

New power plant needs 
seven million in repairs 


Tillson cost soars 

The $10 million Tillson Farm 
power plant, located behind the 
North Amherst fire station, may 
probably never heat the UMass 
community, or anywhere else 
either, for at least the next five 
or ten years. 

Defects in the steamline from 
the plant to campus buildings, 
originally the reason for closing 
the plant eight months after it 
opened in 1974, would cost 
almost $7 million to repair. 

Acting upon the recom- 

mendations of President Robert 
C. Wood and Chancellor 
Randolph W. Bromery, the 
UMass trustees voted to 
upgrade the old coal- fired plant 
with anti- pollution devices in 
the immediate future, and then 
eventually replace the boilers to 
accommodate UMass 

In the meantime, Tillson will 
be mothballed to save it from 
deterioration, just in case oil 
prices change drastically in the 
future. Otherwise, the horses 
could have a new home. 

UM faculty defense funds 

The math and history 
departments have separately 
organized defense funds to 
protect untenured faculty. 

In a May news release, the 
trustees of the $1,000 History 
Faculty Defense Fund state 
"the fund is a response to 
recent actions by the con- 
troversial provost of the 
University, Paul Puryear," who 
it says, was originally inclined to 
deny tenure to a history faculty

Trustees to vote 
to sell or keep 

S. African stocks 


A UMass Board of Trustees sub- 
committee studying University 
investments in companies with 
holdings in South Africa will ask the 
board at their August meeting to 
sell stock in at least two companies, 
according to Pinky Batiste, student 
trustee from the Amherst campus. 

The committee, of which Batiste 
is a member, was formed in April in 
response to student requests that 
the board sell its stock in com- 
panies which have not taken a 
responsible posture in South 
Africa. The students were 
protesting that South Africa's 
practice of apartheid, a policy of 
segregation and white supremacy, 
was being upheld by many com-

Batiste, trustees Daniel Dennis and 
Paul G. Marks and University 

All of the companies were named 
in the most recent Fortune 500 list,

dustrials with ratings based on 

According to Batiste, the 
committee is trying to figure out 
which companies have made at- 
tempts to "break down racist 
practices" in South Africa by 
writing the companies themselves, 
and consulting outside sources. 

She said the group has relied 
heavily on the Investor Respon- 
sibility Research Center of 
Washington, D.C. They have also 
consulted documents from various 
sub-committees of the Congress' 
foreign relations committees. 

The committee is assigning the 
companies to three areas, Batiste 
said, the first being to divest, the 
second to keep and the third, "a 
gray area ", still undetermined.

Although Batiste said the 
committee probably won't divest 
from as many corporations as she 
would like, she terms the vote to 
divest from some a compromise 
between trustees and students. 

Currently there are no plans to 
continue investigating University 
stock holdings in other nations 
once the South African in- 
vestigation is through, she said. 

Meanwhile, Treasurer Johnson is 
sending letters to the corporations 
requesting information on their 
activities in South Africa. 

In the letters, Johnson explains 
that University investment policy 
specifies UMass can only invest in 
companies who commit themselves 
to "the protection of the en- 
vironment, public health, consumer 
protection, equal employment 
opportunities and compliance with 
national and international law."

What 's life like 
near nuke plant? 


VERNON, VT. - Located about 
300 yards from the town's 
elementary school, it occupies only 
127 acres of Vernon's 11,652 acres. 
During the winter it pumps 
360,000 gallons of water a minute 
from the Connecticut River for its 
cooling system, and then 
discharges the water, at a hotter 
temperature, back into the 
southerly flowing current. During 
the summer, 3,000 to 6,000 gallons 
of water per minute are diverted 
from the river. 

It employs 110 people, and 
amounts to about 85 per cent of 
Vernon's taxes. Little wonder, that 
few, although some, of Vernon's 
1200 residents voice disapproval of 
the Vermont Nuclear Power 

"Nobody has too many qualms," 
said Vernon selectman Courtland E. 
Dunklee, Saturday, when he 
paused a few minutes from working 
on the town payroll to discuss the 
nuclear power plant. 

"I haven't seen anything 
detrimental on my farm," Dunklee 
said. He added he has 114 milk 
cows, with hopes of 150 in the 
future, on his 200 acre farm. 

Elizabeth P. Underwood, the 
town clerk, supported Dunklee's 
views. "Mostly out of towners," 
she said, complain about the 
Vermont Yankee. She related how 
one group of protesters marched 
down the main street and "had to 
ask where it was." 

The attendant at the gas station 
adjacent to the plant questioned 
the objectives of nuclear power 

"Show me one major death at a 
nuclear plant," said Raymond 
Atwater. Pointing to an automobile 
parked in the yard, Atwater said 
"that thing kills 25,000 people, and 
that's a conservative number. Why 
don't they protest auto plants?" 
The chairperson of the town 
selectmen described the com- 
munity relations with Vermont 
Yankee as "very good." 

"They've always done what the 
town has asked," said Raymond 
Puffer, who owns a trucking 
company which transports up to 
7500 gallons of oil a week to the 
nuclear plant. 

"I've transported oil all my life, to 
the school, the fire department, I'm 
in the business," explained Puffer, 
as he stood beside a cab. 

Puffer said although "there can 
be man-made mistakes, and there 
have been shutdowns, I don't 
worry a thing about it," because of 
controls and other safety guards. 
"We appreciate the economic 
growth — yes,'' said Puffer, "but 
above safety — no." 

Puffer said the town "was well 
informed" about the plant before it 
was built. There was an "over- 
whelming vote" by the people in 
favor of the plant, he said, adding 
there is one person in town he 
knew to complain about the plant. 
"I don't like it, but there's no 
alternative," said Jean Fortin, 
whose property and house adjoin 
the plant site. 

People who voice disapproval, 
she said, suffer "repercussions, in 
some form or another, like little 
things — children suffer." 

"It's there, but nothing can be 
proved," Fortin said. "We've been 
fed so much garbage." 

Dianna Sidebotham of the New 
England Coalition on Nuclear 
Pollution, said that in the begin- 

ning, the plant had had its problems 
but "in all fairness, ran pretty well in 
1975-76, around 78 to 80 per cent." 

The largest problem with the 
plant, contends Sidebotham, has 
been in public relations. "They're 
uncooperative while talking 

Sidebotham said, for example, 
that when two accidental spillages 
into the Connecticut River occurred 
within the last year, the plant of- 
ficials failed to notify the state of 
Vermont immediately. 

Sidebotham said "virtually 
nobody in Vernon knew about 
nuclear power" when the plant was 
first proposed. 

The Putney anti-nuclear power 
activist is not alone in this belief. 

"We didn't know as much then, 
we know a little more now," said 
Julie Zaluzny, as she stepped out of 
her car in the driveway. 

"The government has done what 
you'd call a half job. They shouldn't 
have put the plant up if they didn't 
have a way to solve the waste," 
said Zaluzny, whose home borders 
the plant property. 

The Vermont Yankee Nuclear 
Power Corporation is currently 
requesting Vernon and the state to 
allow it to expand its waste deposit 


Raymond Puffer, owner of a trucking company 
which transports up to 7500 gallons of oil a week to the 
nuclear facility. "They've always done what the town 
has asked," he says. 

Elizabeth P. Underwood (top left), Bradford 
Bliss (top right), Cortland E. Dunklee (bottom left) 
and William Morse (bottom right) all say they are 
reluctant to complain about the existence of the 
power plant In Vernon. "Nobody has too many 
qualms," according to Dunklee.

very important for people to live

A recent edition of the Hare 
Krshna magazine, "Back to

contains an article about a Hare 
Krshna peace mission to Northern 
Ireland, preaching such wisdom as 
"Why hate someone because 
they're Protestant or Catholic? It is 
like hating someone because they 
wear an orange coat or a green 
coat." And, "while the crowd was 
chanting they were very friendly 
(comic relief, probably), but when 
they stopped they started throwing 
rocks at us. The chanting warded 
off bad energy." Also, "If you want 
peace in Northern Ireland, all you 
have to do is chant." 

And finally, it seems the Virgin

Down the street Merle Baily 
was getting ready to cut his 
lawn. "I've heard lies both ways 
about the plant's safety, I don't 
know the truth," Baily said, 
"Whoever's paid the most! 
makes the most noise. 

"I'd hate to have a coal 
burner down there," said Baily 
"I'll tell you that." 

William Morse of Brattleboro, 
who was fishing in the Con- 
necticut just below the elecrical 
generating plant built in 1910, 

said "It's hard to tell" if fishing 
has been affected by the 
nuclear plant. 

Another Brattleboro 
fisherman, Ralph Nicholas, said 
"There's not much of anything 
to catch," although there used 
to be all kinds of perch. 
Nicholas said there have been 
so many breakdowns in the 
plant that he doesn't bother 
reading about them any more. 

"With today's technology, 
there's lots of ways to create or

Bradford Bliss, Puffer's son-in-

Bliss, "might be costlier, but

flighty, anyway," he said, 
pausing from his criticism of the 
plant. He said he could not 
totally complain about the 
plant, because he worked five 
years on its construction. "It's 
there, it's there," he said,

JUNE 16. 1977 


For the first time in more than 20 
years, the Student Government 
Association (SGA) constitution is 
expected to be brought before the 
UMass Board of Trustees for 
ratification in the fall, which would 
give student governing bodies a 
legal basis in conducting their 

Paul Yanowich, student attorney 
general, said the reason for the 20- 
year lapse is that "everyone had 
been under the impression that the 
constitution had been passed by 
the trustees. Then (Chancellor 
Randolph W.) Bromery dropped 
the bombshell that it hadn't been." 

Under University governance, 
the trustees can delegate authority 
to campus governance units as 
they deem appropriate, thus 
requiring their approval of student

Since last fali, SGA bodies have 
been working to update their 
constitutions. Among those up for 
consideration are the Fine Arts 
Council, the Legal Services 
Governing Board, the by-laws of 
the Undergraduate Student 
Senate, rules governing SGA 
elections, affirmative action 
guidelines, regulations governing 
Recognized S.udent Organizations 
and the Campus Center— Student 
Union Board of Governors. 

The Board of Governors con- 
stitution will probably cause the 
most stir among trustees if any of 
the documents do, and student 
trustee Pinky Batiste said she is 
trying to keep the approach very 
"low key" in an effort to get the 
documents passed. 

Batiste said she will write a 
synopsis of the documents for the 
trustees to read, since they are 
normally inundated with material 
they cannot possibly read. At the 
most, she said, the trustees might 
have a discussion of campus 
governance when the documents 
are brought up for consideration. 

Meanwhile, there is a dispute 
between the Board of Governors

The Board of Governors advises 
Campus Center management on 
policy decisions, allocates space in

Union and reviews and approves 
the Campus Center budget. 

At a meeting of the summer 
board last week, Co-Chairperson 
Michael Pill, an attorney, told the 
group that the dispute continues 
with Field. He said that Field had 
drafted his own constitution which 
"reduces the board to an advisory 

In a memo dated March 8, Pill, 

referring to the dispute stated, 
Student Legal Services Attorney 
James Starr concurs in my 
evaluation of the Field-Wilkies 
position. He further noted that such 
rumblings about illegality in a 
student constitution have been 
tossed about often in the three 
years he has been with the Legal 
Services office." 

"His experience is that the threat 
of dissolving student governance 
procedures because a student 
constituion has not been formally 
adopted by the Board of Trustees is 
usually made when students are 
seeking recognition of rights they 
have exercised for years," Pill 

Field, in a telephone interview 
last week, said he supports the idea 
of the constitution being brought 

up before the trustees. 

Not included in the package is 
the constitution of the Graduate 
Student Senate. President Sally 
Reese said the graduates don't 
believe that asking the trustees to 
ratify their constitution will make 
any difference in their authority to 
act as representative body for the 
graduate students. 

Work was begun last fall to bring 
the assorted documents before the 
trustees, but the process was 
delayed after Bromery reviewed 
them, made recommendations on a 
few points, and sent it back to the 
SGA for reconsideration. 

Bromery said last week he and 
the students would have to "iron 
out their differences" on those 
recommendations before they 
would receive his endorsement. 

Correspondence course 
helps plan financial futures 


Students who have graduated or 
who are graduating within the year 
are probably beginning to think 
about how they are going to 
support themselves on salaries 
which are anything but generous. 

For the first time in their lives, 
they will be confronted with 
problems such as saving up for a 
new car, filling out income tax 
forms and how to save money. 

Over-subscribed classes in the 
School of business Administration 
have probably prevented the 
majority of students from learning 
anything about accounting, 
financing, and investment, but for 
those who went to learn how best 

to stretch their dollars, other op- 
portunities are available. 

For those who cannot afford to 
pay the $3000 plus fee for 
professional financial counseling, a 
fee of about $36 will enroll anyone 
in a correspondence course 
enabling them to plan their own 
financial future. 

Correspondence courses have 
sprung up throughout the country 
in recent years as inflation has 
made it more important to un- 
derstand how to use money to its 
best advantage. 

H. Richard Hartzler, chairperson 
of the General Business and 
Finance Dept. said the courses are

Responsive Communications 
Incorporated is one such firm

Tog firm, based in Newton, 
Mass. has developed computerized 
correspondence courses in the 
fie! is of marketing and education. 
The latest addition to their list of 
courses is one in personal financial 
planning, and with assistance, it 
was put together by Old Colony 
Trust, a division of the First 
National Bank of Boston. 

The course is being offered 
nationwide by 20 banks, including 
the First of Boston, Manufacturers 
Hanover of New York and the First 
Bank of New Haven. It is divided 
into six lessons. 

The firm predicts that each 
lesson should take an hour and a 
half for the average student to 
complete. A multiple choice test 
follows every lesson, which the 
student completes and sends to the 
bank, who than forwards it to the 

A computer scores the tests and 
explains why each answer is right 
or wrong, as well as providing 
comments related to the student's 
answers. After the sixth lesson, a 
Computerized Financial Analysis 
card is sent, on which the student 
supplies his or her pertinent 
financial data. 

Based upon this data, the firm 
prepares a 10-15 page com- 
puterized report to assist the 
student in planning his financial 
future. According to company 
spokespersons the student's 
financial information, as well as the 
computer analysis of the data, is 
strictly confidential. They state that 
the report is, "subject to the ac- 
curacy and completeness" of the 
information the student sup- 
plies,and that it, "cannot anticipate 
changing family and financial 

To take changes in one's per- 
sonal financial status and general 
economic conditions into account, 
the firm recommends that a new 
computerized Financial Analysis be 
prepared every year or two. 

This analysis provides an ex- 
tensive explanation of the income 
and capital needs of the student's 
family, and their capital 
requirements should the provider(s) 
meet death in the present year. A 
monthly analysis of income is also 
provided in the event that the 
"breadwinner(s)" become disabled. 
Other topics which the report 
contains are how to plan for 
retirement and saving to send 
children to college. 

The analysis also suggests that 
the student seeks the advice of his 
or her attorney in discussing wills 
and probate matters. 

Woman's Day Magazine 
describes the course as "ex- 
cellent." As to the financial report 
generated at the end of the course, 
Woman's Day states that "this kind 
of financial analysis alone is worth 
the price of the course."

strongly supponed for tenure by 
the department chairperson and the 
school's dean. 

This spring Puryear announced a 
five year faculty reallocation plan, 
which assumed no additional 
faculty positions for the Amherst 
campus. Under the plan, faculty 
would shift positions according to 
program demand through attrition, 
tenure denials, retirements and 

The history news release also 
says although Puryear "reversed 
himself" to support Marvin Swartz 
for tenure, other history colleagues,

years, may also "fall victim to 
similar arbitrary actions." 

Record strike ending 

If everything goes well this 
Saturday, tomorrow will be the last 
appearance of Off the Record, the 
paper published by workers striking 
the Amherst Record. 

Andrew Marx, spokesperson for 
the strikers, said Monday night the 
"economic issues" have been 
settled. He noted some more 
wording had to be worked out, so 
"there could still be a snag in it." 

Marx, who said he hopes 
Saturday will be the last negotiation 
session, also said Thursday's 
edition of Off the Record could be a 
"farewell" to those who aided the 
strikers' cause. 

The strike is not the only problem 


Michael deSherbinin, owner of the 
Amherst Record. Two weeks ago 
deSherbinin, upon learning the 
family relationship between his new 
tenant and one of the strikers, tore 
up a year- long lease. 

Upon the tenant's request, the 
Amherst Tenant's Association 
intervened with legal advice to both 
the tenant and deSherbinin. After a 
few touchy days, the tenant is now 
residing in deSherbinin's building 
with a good relationship between 
the two. 

Buses requested 

Federal officials will soon be 
reviewing testimony requesting $4 
million for additional transit vehicles 
and a maintenance facility for the 
Pioneer Valley Transit Authority. 

If approved, the UMass bus 
service will receive some of the 
money to purchase 26 buses and 
construct a maintenance garage. 

During a brief public hearing in 
the Amherst town hall last week, 
Robert J. Godding, head of UMass 
transit and transportation, said 14 
of the new buses will be "strictly 

replacements" for old buses, while 
the Student Senate Transit Service 
will utilize the others to increase 
peak hour service, particularly for 
the South Amherst route. 

Godding also said the present 
service area in the physical plant 
yard is "totally inadequate" for bus 

Noiee bugs residents 
After more than 20,000 college 
students have gone home for the 
summer, bringing with them 
thousands of stereo amplifier 
systems, Amherst residents are 
sounding off to selectmen about 
loud music. 

A few even directed their attack 
toward recently installed carillon 
bells belonging to a local Roman 
Catholic Church. 

Fr. Richard O'Toole, pastor of St. 
Brigid's Church on North Pleasant 
St., said last week he has received 
only one telephone complaint 
about the parish's six month old 
carillon bells, which ring twice daily, 
at 4 and 9 p.m., and prior to 
religious services. 

Selectman Nancy Eddy said 
there is "realty no noise regulations 
in Amherst," other than a 
disturbing the peace violation, to 
adequately deal with the situation. 
Tower throbs 

UMass' own Graduate Research 
Center towers are also giving off a 
throbbing noise annoying to neigh- 

Residents on Fairview Ave., 
located 100 yards away from the 
tower, allege noise originating from 
the towers' ventilating fans exceeds 
legal noise pollution limits. 

Researchers from the regional 
pollution control district support 
the residents' complaints, which 
have been dismissed as "chronic" 
by Carl Ranno, of the state Bureau 
of Building Construction (BBC). 

Jack Littlefield, director of 
planning at UMass, contends noise 
is not the only fault of the tower, 
and says he is glad the BBC is now 
forced to deal with the other 
problems in plumbing and ?ir 
conditioning, which he says the 
BBC has ignored. 

Nancy Bernetich 

The Graduate 
Research Center towers 
are among the newest 
problems for UMass 
and neighbor! ng 
residents. It seems they 
produce a steady

JUNE 15, 1977 


* Reality of first student union in nation nears 


meetings were mandated by the 
senate last spring in a motion in- 
troduced by Susan Birmingham, 
another organizing project member. 

Tarpinian said that during the 
talks the group will be discussing 
the different segments of a union, 
including the allocation of money, 
administration, electoral base, 
student services, advocacy and 

"For the first time since the 
student union came to the fore, 
there is a unified sort of awareness 

here on the fourth floor (of the 
Student Union Building where 
student government offices are 
located)," said Tarpinian. 

Those participating in the 
discussions include organizing 
project workers, student govern- 
ment workers and representatives 
from the various government- 
funded agencies. 

Tarpinian said the six 
professional staff from the agencies 
attending the meetings give the 
students a "greater breadth of 
knowledge" than the student 

participants could hope to have on 
their own. 

Speaker of the Student Senate 
Brian DeLima also defended the 
use of professional staff in helping 
to formulate ideas about how a 
student union could operate. 

DeLima said that Larry Magid, 
current head of the Student Center 
for Educational Research and afso a 
member of the faculty union has 
"been hired to help students" 
reorganize. Magid presented his 
own plan for restructuring at a 
summit meeting last week. 

"If you look at his resume, you'll 
see his interests are tied to the 
students," DeLima said. 

SGA co-President Jon A. Hite 
said he was "concerned" over the 
professional staffs extensive in- 
volvement in the talks. He said the 
thing students should be "careful 
of is that any reorganization plan is 
in fact done by students," with only 
students providing the final 
proposal to the senate. 

Tarpinian disagrees, saying the 
student senate will have ultimate 
authority over any decision made. 

Hite said his position as student 

body president has not been 
discussed, nor has the position of 
student trustee been brought up at 
any of the meetings yet. 

Hite said he questions the 
reorganization being done during 
the summer, since area govern- 
ments are not represented in the 

The Third World had legitimate 
concerns in the restructuring 
process, he said, since 
"traditionally unions have fucked 
racial minorities."

SPURTS by Smith 

JUNE 15, 1977 


Baseball quiz: What American 
League team hasn't been shutout 
vet this season? Clue — eliminate 
Seattle, they've been there 5 times. 

...If you think about it, the NBA 
season ended last week, and in 
three months training camps will 
open, and in four months, the 
whole thing will start all over again. 
What a cycle!! 

UMass' Jim Town has a chance 
of playing for the Denver Nuggets 
of the NBA, who drafted him this 
past weekend. If he makes good, he 
will be only the third ex-UMass 
basketball player to play in the 
league (Al Skinner of the N. Y. 
Nets, and 'Dr. J.' of the 76'ers 
being the others). It's too early to 
start talking about the 1977-78 
season though. 

...The NFL has decided to 
lengthen its regular season starting 
in 1978 from 14 games to 16, along 
with adding two more wild cards 
teams into the playoffs. It's a good 

The pro football season isn't as 
long and drawn out as the 
basketball year, or even the 

The circle game 

baseball or hockey seasons. It gets 
going in October and ends in 
January (with the Minnesota 
Vikings' annual Super Bowl choke). 

Pro football has stayed away 
from dilution-itis. Whereas the NBA 
salvaged four ABA teams (who 
performed respectably, con- 
sidering), and baseball just added 
two teams, hockey has gone crazy 
in past years. 

Hockey has gone from a skilled 
game on ice,' to a watered-down 
disaster. Admitted were Canucks, 
Golden Seals, Scouts, Islanders, 
Sabres and Flames. Imagine what 
the NHL would look like, if the 
league votes this week to save the 
WHA. Fans would get to see great 
games like Montreal Canadiens- 
Edmonton Oilers, Philadelphia 
Flyers-New England Whalers, and 
Boston Bruins-Quebec Nordiques. 

To make matters even more 

entertaining, we could have one 

fold after a year's operation, move 

to a new town, and do no better 

— — — i 

there than in their old city (for 
instance, California Seals to 
Colorado Rockies and K.C. Scouts 
to Cleveland Barons). Adjust the 
schedule so that old rivalries and 
classy contests are avoided, and 
you're set. 

Football meanwhile, has only 
added two new teams recently 
(Tampa Bay and Seattle). Though 
they weren't overly impressive, one 
can't expect them to be in their 
initial season. 

...NFL representatives are 
meeting this week, and will 
probably refuse a proposal by some 
guy named Bill Sargent to sell him 
the exclusive rights to all post- 
season games for the next five 

The five-year package, which 

would include Super Bowl games, 
would reportedly go to Sargent for 
$400 million. Sargent wants to air 
these games, not on television, but 
in closed circuit theatres across the 

Since the Super Bowl is the 
highlight of the year, and millions of 
fans wouldn't be able to pay to see 
the game for closed circuit theatre 
prices (possibly as high as $100 a 
seat), the NFL will refuse the offer, 
and stick with TV as its source of 

...It seems trans-sexual Renee 
Richards failed her first 
chromosome test, which has been 
held up by WTT Commissioner 
Butch Buckholtz. Until she does, 
she can't play any matches with the 
Nets (Cleveland). Good work. 

Butchie boy. 

Personally, I don't feel Richards 
should be allowed to play in any 
women's match. It's too bad a 
WTT squad even signed her to play 
on their team. I hope she never 
passes the test. Naturally, this is 
only opinion — nothing to get 
upset over 

...Baseball's trading deadline is 
tonite. Will Vida Blue go to a 
pennant contender in the AL East? 
Not if Bowie Kuhn can stop it. Look 
for no changes on the Yankees or 
Red Sox, but possibly a deal in- 
volving the Orioles. 

Can you pick the starting lineup 
for the All-Star game, to be played 
in Yankee Stadium July 19? Next 
week, the choices. 

Answer to quiz... if you guessed 
the Red Sox, Brewers or Tigers, or 
any other team besides the White 
Sox, you were wrong.

The Fifth Annual Summer In- 
tramural Cross Country Race 
(FASICCR) will be held tomorrow

days Interested people should call 
Charlotte at 256 0470. 

Anyone wishing to play softball on

Please bring bats, balls and gloves. 

The Child Care Office of UMass 
would like to announce the opening 
for the summer of the Toy Lending 
Library, located at North Village 
Apartments next to the laundry 
room. The library is free and only 
requests that you show proof of af 
filiation with the University when 
signing up for membership. The 
library will be open Tuesday through 
Thursday, from 5 p.m to 9 p.m Call 
545 0333 for more information. 

There will be a meeting of all 03 
employes tomorrow afternoon at 4:30 
m Campus Center 165 to discuss the 
problems of 03 funding and possible 


next, when the veteran is remaining 
at the same school, the veteran is 
eligible for interim payments. 

This means that if veterans are 
enrolled here in the spring planning 
to return in the fall, that if they go 
to the first session of summer 
school, they are eligible for interim 

VA enrollments for the fall: there 
are two ways to be paid. The first is 
advance pay. Veterans must 
request it and have at least a full 
calendar month existing between 
the date of their last enrollment and 
the new beginning date. Thus, 
summer school students will 
generally not be eligible for advance 
pay at this school. 

The advance pay will be for the 
so-called "stub month" and the 

following month. Thus, at UMass 
for August 31 and the month of 
September. The second method is 
through a "confirmed" enrollment, 
an enrollment that the school must 
hold until registration day before 
submitting to the VA. 

In either case, whether advance 
pay or "confirmed" enrollment, 
veterans must come in to the 
Veterans Affairs Office to sign up. 

As regards monthly benefits, 
starting in the month of June, 
veterans will be receiving checks at 
the end of the month rather than at 
'he beginning. 

The Veterans Affairs Office is 
also expanding its services to in- 
clude Discharge Upgrading. 

For further information, call the 
Veterans Affairs Office at 236 
Whitmore, 545-1346. 

Project self begins 
summer workshops 

Project Self is a series of 
workshops by and about women, 
that will be starting its summer 
series the week of June 27. The 
workshops take place within an 
alternative model; one that is 
supportive, noncompetitive and 
woman- focused. 

Registration will run until June 
17. For more information and for a 
brochure, call 545-0883 or stop by 
Everywoman's Center in 506

JUNE 16. 1977 

Parliament; LIVE P-FUNK 
EARTH TOUR; Casablanca - Last 
year Parliament embarked on the 
largest, most elaborate concert tour 
ever by an RErB act. The P-Funk 
Earth tour was a smashing success 
as multitudes of "Loyal Fans, 
Maggots, Clones and Funkateers" 
'urned out to pay homage to the 
H^ly Mothership as it landed in 
•heir respective towns. 

To me the most exciting piece of 
•he album (a double record set) is 
'he "Tear The Roof Off The Sucker 
Medley" with "Give Up The Funk" 

The Gabby Pahinui Hawaiian 
Ah! love those exotic birds and fruit 
that manage to surface somehow 
through our mass vinyl sameness. 
This record is for open minds and 
special tastes. Gabby Pahinui is 
Hawaii's most respected musician 

10cc; Deceptive Bends, Mercury 
Despite being split in half by the 
departure of Lol Creme and Kevin 
Godley, the new 10cc never the less 
continues to assert its musical 
prowess quite nicely with 
Deceptive Bends. If there is 
anything wrong with it is that the 
band is again in a transitional period 
and about a quarter of the material 
reflects that situation. The biggest 
offender is "Feel The Benefit" - 
not for the wry cop of "Dear 
Prudence" - but for its sappyness. 
For the most part. Deceptive 
Bends is a 10cc fans's and pop- 
ster's delight. Besides the hit single 
("The Things We Do For Love"), 
Honeymoon With B-Troop" rocks 
in the tradition of "Silly Love", as 
does "Good Morning Judge" — a 
nifty two minute cracker that's 
already a British hit single. And the 
cc's haven't lost any of their humor 
— as witnessed by "You've Got A 
Cold" and "B-Troop." ("You've 
Got A Cold": foreign bodies in your 
Kleenex, while your system is 
dying. The Bugs are having a ball.) 
True, Deceptive Bends has its 
problems, but patience and 
repeated listenings should rectify 
that. The record's a»r of whimsy, 
assuredness and completeness 
points towards good things. (Fans 
take note: the two current singles 
have unreleased B-Sides, "Hot To 
Trot" and "Don't Squeeze Me Like

The medly is fitting nicely into my 
disco program as well as satisfying 
my listening pleasure. 

The rest of the live stuff tickles 
my earhole too as it contains some 
haphazzard but healthy versions of 

"Star Child," "P-Funk", Children

and "Take Your Dead Ass Home". 
All are well done but I must say that

only complaint is the sound quality 
at times. This slight matter can be 
somewhat overlooked though as a 
live LP's sound is bound to do a 
little suffering. 

There is some studio recorded 
funk on the LP which can be 
removed with a compound of 
ground maggots and Vasoline 
Petroleum Jelly. The studio sides 
include: "This is The Way We Funk 
With You", "Fantasy Is Reality", 
and "The Landing (Of The Holy 
Mothership)". "This Is The Way 
We Funk With You" is typical 
Parliament (if there is such a 
thing!!) featuring more good horny 
funk with catch phrases that will 
surely become household words by 
:he time their next tour rolls around. 
"Fantasy is Reality" really tickled 
my earhole as it's something new 
from the PARUAFUNKA 


So remember, this LP is good for 
what ails ya', baby. It's a four-sider 
but "he bigger the headache the 
bigger the pill", a double LP with a 
double purpose, you bee, "Funk not 
only moves, it Removes!!"

Second concert inquiry 
tonight in Northampton 


Tonight residents of North- 
ampton's Ward 3 and promoters of 
the controversial May 15 rock 
concert will present their testimony 
before the City Council in the 
second and final public inquiry into 
the events leading up to and 
surrounding the concert. 

Last Thursday night's inquiry 
was deemed unofficial when Mayor 
David W. Cramer and City Council 
President Robert Patenaude, the 
only two designated to preside over 
council meetings, failed to appear. 

Ward 6 Councillor Charles 
Baranowski, who had proposed the 
investigation, was unanimously 
elected to chair the informal 
inquiry. Thirty people attended the 
three hour session; most of tr«»m 
had been asked to be there to 
testify. When the meeting adjourn- 
ed at 10:30 p.m. the members of the 
Ward 3 Association, an active 
group of Ward 3 residents, most of 
whom neighbor the fairgrounds, 
said they were not satisfied. One 
member of the association stated 
that the absence of the presiding 
officers meant that "a lot of people 
do not take this seriously." 

Mayor Cramer, reached at his 
home the following day, explained 
that he was busy presiding over a 
School Board meeting, and 
Patenaude said that he had a 

personal business appointment that 
could not be postponed. 

"As long as I've been mayor in 
Northampton," said Cramer, "I 
have not missed a single school 
board meeting. These people have 
a right to be upset but I can't very 
well be two places at once." 

Patenaude was opposed to hold- 
ing the inquiry but said that he had 
not boycotted the meeting and 
planned to attend tonight's session 
and that as chairman of the council 
he would participate in the 
questioning process should he 
think it necessary. 

"I couldn't see what an inquiry 
would accomplish," he stated last 
Friday night, "Everyone had public- 
ly apologized and promised that all 
damages would be paid." 

He also said that no one was 
aware of the two meetings conflict- 
ing when the dates were set for the 
inquiry at a City Council meeting on 
May 31. The mayor telephoned him 
the night before last week's inquiry 
to inform him that he would not be 
able to attend. 

Five people gave testimony at the 
first inquiry session. The first was 
Charles DeRose, Daily Hampshire 
Gazette publisher and co-chairman 
of the Northampton Rotary Club, 
one of the sponsors of the concert. 

DeRose gave a history of the 
event from its conception down to 

what is currently being done about 
the damages to property neigh- 
boring the fairgrounds. He ex- 
plained that the club had chosen 
Arlo Guthrie to headline the act 
because he had appeared before a 
crowd of 50,000 on April 4 in Florida 
without incidence. 

"He would not attract an element 
that we did not want to attract," 
said DeRose. "Now it is unpleasant 
for me to sit here before you — it 
was a bad decision." 

He attributed much of the "bad 
element" that arrived that weekend 
to incorrect advertising that ap- 
peared in the Valley Advocate and 
aired over WAAF-FM in Worcester. 
He said that the wrong hours and 
the wrong band names had been 

Aimer Huntley, president of the 
Three-County Fair association, 
explained his part in the affair and 
counsel for the association At- 
torney William Welch said any new 
activity at the fairgrounds will be 
carefully scrutinized. 

Police Chief James Whalen 
detailed many of the security 
problems that were encountered 
during that weekend and outlined 
their expense. A member of the 
Rotary Club, Chief Whalen said that 
trust and sincerity were to blame 
for many of the unanticipated

**s| Slapshot, A George Roy Hill 
production, starring Paul Newman, 
directed by George Roy Hill. 

Sports are the national pasttime 
of this country, or so sociologists 
tell us. Almost everyone plays a 
sport, be it as mundane a game as 
baseball, or the more exotic 
lacrosse. But many sports, in fact 
the favorite sports of this country, 
are built on violence. Violence plays 
a major part in every sport which is 
considered, "American." One of 
the most violent and brutal of our 
favorite sports is hockey. The smell 
of blood, the chance to see 
slugfests, donnybrooks, and an 
occasional goal attracts huge 
crowds who pack million dollar 
arenas. And yet, if you think that 
the brand of hockey played in the 
National Hockey League is brutal, 
you will be surprised to find that it 
pales in comparison to the game 
played in the farm clubs of the 
semi-pro league. It is this unusual 
"sport" that is examined in the new 
film, Slapshot. 

The movie is about the woes and 
worries of a disgustingly poor 
hockey team, named the 
Charlestown Chiefs, who are so 
bad, (how bad are they?), that the 
few fans that do show up to the 
games root for the opposing team! 
In fact, to understate a point, the 
Chiefs are so incompetent that in 
comparison, the 1968 Penguins are 
Stanley Cup material. 

The team is composed of clumsy, 
cowardly, idiotic misfits, led by 
" ver the hill" player-coach Paul 
Newman. And, as if the team didn't 
have enough troubles simply trying 
to play hockey, the only major 
. industry in the town, a mill, is 
closing down, damning the Chiefs 
to posterity. However, Newman 
figures that if the impossible oc- 
curs, and the team starts to win, the 
owner of the Chiefs will sell the 
team to a new franchise. Im- 
peccable logic, as far as it goes, 
considering that it is predicated on 
a miracle. 

Well, the miracle arrives, in the 
form of three, nearsighted, im 
mature brothers who spend their 
time on the ice killing the opposing 
players, and their free time playing 
with tinkertyys (come to think of it, 
what does Dave Shultz do in Ins 
free time I'll bet he is a Leggos 
tan). Ihese three licensed killers 
tape their hands with metal, cross- 

check, slash, butt, maim and injure 
the opposing players, goalies, 
referees and even the fans. What 
little scoring is done is left to the 
sole hockey player on the team, 
Michael Ontkean, (remembered 
from his stirring performances in 
77?e Rookies), who, despite the 
taunts of both the opposing players 
and his own teammates, refuses to 
join in the freak show that ensues 
after every opening whistle. At one 
point, after Ontkean backs down 
from another fight, Newman 
characteristically insults his an- 
cestry and machismo, and informs 
Ontkean that, "you aren't here to 
score goals, they (the fans), want 

Playing this marvelous style of 
hockey, the Chiefs miraculously 
avoid being suspended and wind up 
in the championship game (or else 
the movie would end early!). Well, 
the opposition has gone one better 
and has fielded Murderers Row. 
What ensues is a bit bloody, but 
hilarious, and Ontkean steals the 
show with a very original and well 
choreographed dance on ice. 

When one stops and thinks 
about the movie, its message is all 
too clear, and devastating. No 
aspects of the sport is free from 
abuse; the managers, players, 
players wives, fans, and even the 
referees are subject to merciless 
denegration. However, while the 
message may be all too clear, the 
movie is entertaining and done 

quite well, and that is most im- 

A warning; if you are pure and 
chaste, and your virgin ears have 
never been subject to the infamous 
"locker room" style of dialogue (on 
appropriate subjects), you may find 
this movie a bit too much. 

There is one saving grace: the 
writer, a woman who graduated 
from Brown U., has resisted the 
temptation of putting in some 
ridiculous prattle, attempting to 
rationalize the sport of hockey, or 
what the players are doing. It needs 
no rationalization, like thousands of 
other things that we can't explain, 
nor want to. Yet, it is not so much 
the sport of hockey that is planned, 
.but the managers and league 
authorities for allowing this peculiar 
brand of hockey to continue. Who 
comes off worst in this film?; the 
fans, as it is this particularly crude 
bunch that turns out in droves to 
see the street fights on ice. 

Paul Newman seems at ease in 
his role, but never really works too 
hard to convince us of anything. 
Michael Ontkean is excellent in his 
first starring role, and demonstrates 
that he has other virtues besides a 
pair of fast skates and a pretty face. 
The supporting cast is very good, 
although most of the parts are very 
poorly developed and quite 
shallow. But, again, this movie is 
certainly not a character study. It is 
the study of a brutal game of 
hockey, and it is quite passable as 
an entertatnjng diversion.

'Truthfully speaking, this is the 
largest audience I've had in the 
United States," said jazz 
saxophonist Marion Brown at 
Thursday night's concert in the 
Fine Arts Center. If the capacity 
crowd was at first disappointed 
with Al DiMeola's last minute 
cancellation, they enthusiastically 
awarded Brown a standing ovation. 

Al DiMeola's management 
claimed that the sound system 
provided by Summer Activities was 
inadequate, thus the cancellation. 

Brown has style and class. Soft- 
spoken, direct, intuitive, he trans- 
forms charming ballads, as with 
"Angel Eyes," into emotional, raw, 
gut-crying melodies. The reference 
is the blues, and Brown's blue 
lyricism is powerful because of the 
tension he brings to the gliding 
melodies. If it is slow and flowing, 
he counter-points the music with 
staccato outbursts. He breathes 
life, not words, into his music. 
"What I think about (when I play 
this) is someone I met in a bar one 
time whose girl had left him." 

Brown, usually catalogued 
among the Who's Who in Avante- 
Garde-Free Jazz along with (An- 
thony Braxton, Archie Shepp, 
Albert Ayler, Cecil Taylor), in- 
troduced the evening crowd to four 
solo pieces. I found "And They 
Danced," which was recorded with 
Leo Smith for Arista Records, to be 
well-balanced, both in its pace and 
format. "La Placita," at first simple 

in form and strainea in sections, 
was opened up towards the middle 
of the piece, and despite my doubts 
with the way the Caribbean sound 
is utilized, Brown won me over with 
his last few notes. 

Until last night Brown may have 
been unknown to many in the 
audience, except for those in the 
audience who attended Hampshire 
College's Loft series or saw him at 
Zelda's in Northampton last year. 
Brown, stylistically on the same 
plane as Ornette Coleman, Sonny 
Rollins, and Benny Carter (not to 
mention Sun Ra), gains originality 
with his own blend of power and 
subtlety, mixing melodic themes 
with explorations in the higher 
registers, picking out definite 
rhythms, and then screeching them 
to a halt. Pause. Blow. 

Judging by the groups per- 
formance (Steve McCraven, drums; 
Kevin Ross, bass; Brandon Ross; 
guitar) during the second half of the 
concert. Brown is able to both 
break away from the ballad to fury 
and come right back again to that 
original mood. 

After the intermission, at which 
point the band joined Brown, my 
attention never flagged, although I 
questioned the band's energy, 
which at times was extremely laid 
back. Nevertheless, on "For- 
tunate," a composition of Brown's 
which began ballad-like, melodic, 
with beautiful slow clarity, up- 
tempoed itself and within minutes.

the band energizing the piece. 

The surprise of the evening, 
which with Brown's delivery made 
up for DiMeola's absence, were the 
three songs for which Vea Williams 
joined the group. "My Funny 
Valentine," never a favorite of 
mine, was overshadowed by her 
rendition of "My Romance," an old 
Rogers and Hart Tune. Colorful and 
unrestrained, Vea was her best in 

The last two numbers, my two 
favorite of the evening, displayed 
that same rhythmic approach, 
intensity, and pace, as David 
Williams (former bass player for 

all photos: Edward Cohen 

Elvin Jones) has said, "no matter 
what the music is you should be 
able to dance to it", and I felt like 
dancing. Brown said he wrote the 
first of the two pieces, which 
remains untitled, after he heard a 
Rhodesian guitar musician. The 
bassist and guitarist moved right 
into this one, cooking up a flowing 
rhythm. The drummer was at his 
best here, and his solo, as well as 
the guitarist's, were highlights of 
the piece. The rhythm never 
disintegrated. Browns scattered 
breaks and bits of melody gave the 

music its wholeness. Brown closed 
the concert with "Sauer's Dance", 
a piece written by Jack Grey, who 
appeared with Brown last year at 
Zelda's. Working with the com- 
position he took his direction from 
its basic form and then improvised. 
Nobody is going to listen to 
Brown and confuse him with the 
laid-back style of John Klemmer 
(the new Klemmer) and say, 
swoon. Certainly the audience 
wasn't swooning at the FAC when 
their standing ovation brought 
Brown back for a short encore. The 
audience was more than pleased. 
Brown cooked.

Chancellor Randolph W. 
Bromery's address at the 
University's 107th commencement, 
his sixth commencement, con- 
tained nearly all the elements of a 
farewell address. 

Reports of Bromery's 

dissatisfaction with the Com- 
monwealth's low committment to 
public higher education began to 
re-surface, and the community 
learned he was being considered 
for the post of president of the new

When UMass President Robert 
C. Wood announced his resignation 
plans last week, the question to as!', 
on campus immediately became, 
"What will Bob Wood do next?'' 

Robert Coldwell Wood, 52, the 
17th president of the University, 
has led a varied career as an 
educator, author and specialist in 
government and urban affairs. 

In announcing his resignation 
plans, effective January 1, 1978, 
last week, Wood said when he first 
became president in 1970, he told 
the board of Trustees he "expected 
to serve not less than five years nor 
more than ten." He's been saying it

Beggars can be choosers 


As another car zoomed by she 
thought to herself, "Maybe I should 
take my shirt off and try to catch a 
r>de with my halter; it looks like I'm 
going to have to use whatever it 
takes to get to work on time." 

Upon discarding some of her 
clothing and assuming a 
provocative stance, an older blue 
Mustang glides to a halt beside 
her. ..two glazed eyes focus upon 
hers and travel downward, slowly, 
to take in her •full appearance. 
Feeling the force of his stare upon 
her, she hedgingly opens the door, 
feeling obliged to take the ride 
because she has imposed upon him 
to stop and because she wants to 
reach the place of her employment 
on time. 

"Where are you going?" 

"No place special, I'm just 
cruising around, enjoying the day." 

"Great, I'm heading for 
Belchertown State School." 

"Care for a beer?" he slurs, 
pulling a half empty six-pack from 
the back seat and throwing the car 
into gear. "How about taking the 
scenic route?" 

Her reply of "I'd really rather 
not" is lost in the roar as his engine 
is revved up to swing around a 
corner onto a side road. 

The above situation could have 
two obvious conclusions, either the 
driver is overly friendly and just 
wants to take a round-about trip or 
he intend? to keep the woman with 
him against her wishes with 
dangerous intentions. 

Is it worth taking a 50-50 chance 
like this when a few precautions 
could nave given the rider a better 
idea of what she was getting into? 

Although hitchhiking is an ac- 
cepted, and sometimes the only, 
means of transportation, the hitch- 

hiker should never feel obligated 
to accept a ride. This goes 
especially if there are immediate, 
uncomfortable feelings when you 
question the driver. Before getting 
into the vehicle, make a few quick 
observations. Find out if the driver 
has a specific destination. Look to 
see that the door handle is intact 
and in, working order. Be wary of 
cars with automatic door locks. 
Always trust your sixth sense, that 
intuition which alerts you to bad 
vibes. With this type of 50-50 
situation, you only have to lose 
once, and it may be for good. 

For the driver, the chances and 
risks are essentially the same. But 
at least you have the discretion of 
who to pick up and who to pass by. 
With the bus situation in the 
Amherst area sharply curtailed for 
the summer, many more people are 
forced to take to the highway by 
way of hitchiking. The daytime 
provides the driver with a good look 
at who is ahead up the road. At 
night, this foresight is gone and so 
are the rides. 

Some unusual things happen 
when you hitchhike. Last week on 
the way into work, a woman in her 
late 60s picked me up in her three- 
speed Chevy. Not only did she take 
me out of her way to my 
destination but she was queen of 
the road in her "hot rod." This is 
one of the most pleasant aspects of 
hitchhiking; people who help other 
people are the nicest and it gives 
you some encouragement about 
life in general. 

Hitchhiking can be fun and 
enlightening experience for both 
parties, if you keep in mind the 
potential dangers. Also, use your 
better judgement when Meeting 
rides. Remember, beggars cm be

After Wood, who next? 


Editor's note: Jay Martus is the 
former Student Government 
Association president. 

Thinking about what one could 
write on our 17th president, I am 
left with the choice of either a 
rapid-fire review of the turbulent 
specifics, or a ration of equivocated 
generalizations. Having had a 
weekend to digest the media 
coverage of the resignation, I feel 
that reflection on these and its 
impact on the various constituent 
groups of the University will suffice. 

It all started on Friday morning 
about 9:30. After my usual morning 

session at the Whitmore Coffee 
Shop, which had an unusual 
clamour of chit-chat, my still- 
s'eeping brain was startled by a 
fellow ex-Student Government 
Association heavy, who was the 
first bearer of the news. It really 
wasn't that surprising, given what 
one could have surmised as being 
increasingly inevitable within a 
short period of time. 

Wood has played the consumate 
politician throughout his career as 
UMass's president. Through the 
earlv seventies he championed the 
"multi-university" concept on 
behalf of the institution. His tenure 

in office turned several dreams into 
pragmatic realities. The opening of 
the Boston Harbor complex and the 
Worcester medical school were 
early plumes in Wood's hat. 
Perhaps the fate of Wood is not 
unlike these deceptively early 

As the fiscal crisis of the cities 
touched and shaded even the most 
peripheral public enterprises. Bob 
Wood's bright prospects began to 
dim. Not only did the battle begin 
over state spending in human 
services, but particularly in higher 
education. Why? The political base 
of higher education was at best 

Peter Wallace 

stagnating in a popular sense. The 
hordes of vocal and overabundant 
students reached a high water mark 
and began to recede. People who 
had previously articulated the 
needs of public higher education 
were now diminishing in numbers 
and commitment. Public higher 
education's articulation shifted to 
the individual titular heads of in- 
stitutions, the Robert Wood's. 

As Wood perceived the in- 
creasing need for stronger and 
more persistent cloakroom tactics 
with the politicians, he opted to 
acknowledge this relationship 
tacitly rather than overtly. Tnis can 
only work as long as you remain 
effective in balancing the bases of 
legitimate power within the in- 
stitution (faculty, students, staff 
and trustees) and externally with 
the power brokers of Beacon Hill 
(the Kelly's, Olver's and Fin- 

Wood's resignation was growing 

increasingly inevitable. The Harbor 
campus is floundering. The 
Worcester campus has a fiscal gap 
that can only be matched by its 
credibility gap. Students have long 
borne the brunt of his quick trigger 
transfers during the late spring, 
summer playtime months). 
Students have seen minimal state 
budget increases distributed in a 
manner of the "one for you, two for 
me" syndrome (see Common 
Services budgets). Faculty are sick 
of being treated as a political 
football in regards to their rights as 
workers, and expressed their ap- 
preciation of Wood in their lynch 
mob general meeting of last spring. 
Probably the most telling schism in 
Wood's power base has been with 
the trustees. The votes are getting 
closer and closer to being against 
the central administration position 
on many major policy decisions.

LSO useless 

'This must be one of the exhibits for the Toward The Day After Tomorrow Fair! 

To the Editor: 

Being Black, Puerto Rican and 
poor, I have often been pushed 
around by this oppressive and 
discriminatory system. UMass, as a 
representative of this system, 
follows the same trend. After 
passively resisting discriminatory 
practices in this university for two 
years, I decided to seek legal advice 
from the Legal Services Office — a 
right that was swiftly and fimnly 
denied by this same office. 

On June 14, 1977, I went to the 
Legal Service Office (LSO) to 
request an appointment. I explained 
that I needed legal advice con- 
cerning an administrative action 
which directly affected me as a 
student. I was denied an ap- 
pointment. They explained that the 
administration was the University 
and that the University was the 

students and as such they could 
not represent a student suing The 

I was not requesting legal 
representation for a court battle 
demanding millions of dollars from 
students. I was simply requesting 
an appointment for legal advice 
concerning a discriminatory ad- 
ministrative practice. Is it too much 
to ask that a service almost totally 
funded by students fees offer 
advice in legal matters between 
UMass administration and the 
students? I, as other Third World 
people, am often pushed around by 
racist administrations that exist 
within American institutions. And, 
when it comes down to dealing 
with the sacred cow, (the Ad- 
ministration), legal means, such ac 
LSO, are ineffective and useless.

OH crash victim 
buried yesterday 


Private funeral services were held 
yesterday for 28 year old Kenneth 
C. Preble Jr., who died in a Monday 
morning airplane accident on the 
UMass campus. 

Preble, buried in the Pelham 
Valley Cemetery, was returning 
around 6:45 a.m. to Turners Falls 
airport from a crop dusting job in 
Wilbraham when his plane crashed 
in an empty parking lot 100 feet up 
a hill from Van Meter dormitory in 
Central Area. 

While officials from the Federal 
Aviation Administration are still 
conducting an investigation of the 
accident, an autopsy performed 
Monday determined "multiple skull 
fractures" as the cause of death. 

Dr. Donald B. Rogers, assistant 
medical examiner for Hampshire 
County, said Monday that Preble's 
injuries "implied he was dead on 
the first impact." 

Rogers also said the possibility of 
Preble being poisoned by the crop- 
dusting chemicals had been 
checked out, but the autopsy 
produced "no particular evidence." 
The chemicals, said Rogers, were 
of a "weak solution." 

Captain Robert G. Joyce of the 
UMass Department of Public 
Safety said the investigation would 
"take a while." 

The officials, said Joyce, will re- 
construct the accident to see "if 
there was a problem" with a power 
failure or with the pilot. 

One of the two eye witnesses to 
the accident, Stewart MacDonald, 
said he was "standing in the bath- 
room when I heard a whish in the

ment of Housing and Urban 
Development, staffed by 
representatives of the National 
Solar Heating and Cooling In- 
formation Center. Slides and 
photos of solar homes in the United 
States and demonstration models 
of solar heating and cooling 
systems will be shown. 

Sam Love, one of the coor- 
dinators of Earth Day and a founder 
of the Washington-based lobbying 
group Environmental Action will 
contrast past fantasies of the future 
with the realities of life today during 
his "Project Tomorrow" presen- 
tation on Saturday. 

Nine workshops will be offered 
by the New Alchemy Institute, an 
environmental group from Woods 
Hole, Mass., on Friday and 
Saturday. Topics such as 
"Bioshelters and their social im- 
plications," "Small scale intensive 
farming," and "Agricultural 
forestry" will be discussed. 

The Turning Point Health Center 
of Greenfield, Mass., will conduct 

Ralph Nader

Record strike ends 

There's one less newspaper

seven weeks of picketing and

was held Saturday between 
deSherbinin and Local 65 of the 
Distributive Workers of

raise during the next two years 
were agreed upon. 

During the strike period, 
deSherbinin continued the 
biweekly Record with the help 
of 10 employees who did not 
strike, and temporary labor. 

The strikers' Off the Record, 
although only a weekly,

Sea brook relived? 

New England police officers 
may get another chance at 
extra cash while sun bathing in 
Seabrook, N. H., if a Clamshell 
Alliance threat to reoccupy the 
Seabrook nuclear power plant 
site is carried out. 

Clamshell • spokesperson 

Robert Cushing suggested 
another occupation last 
Saturday from the steps of the 
New Hampshire state house. 
He spoke in response to a 
decision of the chief of the 
Environmental Protection 
Agency (EPA) approving the 
proposed cooling system of the 
plant. This decision overrules 
the Boston EPA office which 
had questioned the en- 
vironmental impact of the 
proposed cooling system. 

Clamshell organized the May 
1st occupation of the Seabrook 
plant, where 144 people were 
arrested on criminal trespassing 
charges. The detention of those 
arrested, most of whom refused 
to post bail, became a financial 
burden for the New Hampshire 
state government. 

This overturned appeal on 
the cooling system was seen by 
officials as the major stumbling 
block to construction of the 
plant. Other appeals, which 
have not yet been reviewed 
entirely, include the questioning 
of the plant's ability . to 
withstand earthquakes, the 
handling of radioactive 
materials, evacuation planning 
for the area, the demand for the 
electricity which would be 
generated, and the capability of 
the Public Service Co., the 
builder of the plant, to con- 

struct it. 

Ozone layer studied 

The UMass observatory near 
the Quabbin Reservoir will be 
the site for a two year study of 
aerosol sprays. The $60,000 
project, funded by the 
Manufacturing Chemists 
Association, will utilize a new 
radio-telescope to determine 
the damage of the ozone layers 
caused by aerosol sprays. 

The new telescope is one 
million times more accurate 
than the four older telescopes 
also on the site. 

Researchers from the State 
University of New York will be 
working alongside the UMass 
Astronomy Department during 
the project. A deadline for a ban 
of aerosol sprays will go into 
effect in 1979, and researchers 
hope their study will be 
completed before then. 

Three federal agencies, the 
Food and Drug Administration, 
the Consumer Products Safety 
Commission, and the En- 
vironmental Protection Agency 
have all petitioned Congress for 
a fluorocarbon, or aerosol 
spray, ban.

JUNE 22. 1977 

JUNE 22, 1977 

Today's sports question: What 
is the best thing that has ever 
happened to World Team Tennis? 
Note watch out, this is an 
opinionated question [you will not 
be marked oft if )x>u get it wrong]. 
Clue it has nOwing to do with 
the signing ot a player. 

Major league baseball is into its 
third month of action this season, 
and with trades just being made 
and the All-Star game a little under 
a month away, this would be a 
good time to predict what team is 
going where, arid wfeich teams are 
going nowhere. 

First the American League. 

Easte«n divfcion: when the 
season ttrst opened, sports writers 
left and rigHi picked either the New 
York Yankee* gr the Red Sox to 
take the division! jjl 

The Orioles shocked both teams 
by somehow sneaking past 'em 
both into first place. However, the 
Brids weren't comfortable in the 
first place nest, and flew down to a 
lower branch. 

The Yanks and "Red Sox have 
been engaged in a tug- o- war for the 
leadership. Ti Sox climbed in, and 
out, replaced jy the Pinstripers. 

But who will be in first come the 
end of September? 

Sentimentally, either the Orioles 
or Red Sox. Hopefully not the 
Yankees. After their exhibition in 
the World Series te&t season vs. the 
Reds, they should Be^iut in their 
own league and bar redrham post- 
season play ^0^^^ 

There are four more teams in the 
Eastern division, but none of them 
are going anywhere. I would like to 
see the expansionist Toronto 
Bluejays avoid the cellar. 

A '-West: well, it looks like my 
( nd Athletics aren't gonna do 
H lis year, though they could 
k some people and stay in the 
I for half the season, which is 
s rising since Mr. Finley has 
managed to ship most of the team 
to such cities as Texas, New York, 
Houston, etc. 

Minnesota's Twins are streaking, 
but they'll cool off, probably in 
Kansas City's waterfall stadium. 
Meanwhile, the White Sox are hot 
on their tail. And when the hot 
month of August comes around, 
the White Sox will don their shorts, 

and burn up the turf. 

The western division is ironically 
disimilar to the east, in that none of 
the teams are overpoweringly 

The White Sox will take the 
division by 1 game, Minnesota 
pulling up the rear. Rod Carew will 
win the batting title. 

I feel bad for the Rangers. They 
have a good team, but can't seem 
to put a long win streak together. 
Maybe they'll finish third. 

Ignore the Angels. No matter 
what trades they make, they'll 

never win anything. 

Go get em, Mariners. 

National League: East-West 
combo. We here in New England 
don't get to see too much of the 
national leagues representatives, so 
there's no sense in wasting a lot of 
ink on them. 

The reds last year won them- 
selves another pennant, but 
hopefully even the acquisition of 
Ex-Met pitcher Tom Seaver won't 
be enough for them to repeat as 
World Champs for the third year in 
a row. Outside of the dodgers, who 

are taking their dive now, the 
division is sewed up (the rest of the 
league is atrocious — from Padres 
and Giants thru the Astros and 

The Chicago Cubs will attempt to 
keep up with their friends the White 
Sox, but it won't work. The new 
Pirates will sweep by the Cubs and 
Cards, in their Superman-type 
uniforms. Hopefully, they'll knock 
out the Reds in the playoffs.

Richards is quitting pro tennis, 
supposedly to resume practice as 
an eye surgeon.

monthly meetings will be lower, she 

Secretary Dave Biggers said the 
four officers want to end the 'small 
group" atmosphere of the senate, 
where only a limited number of 
people participate year in and year 

So Rees, Biggers, Vice-President 
A. Robert Phillips and Treasurer 
Ken Ross will be campaigning 
department-by-department in the 
fall to drum up support for the 
senate and to learn what issues 

students want the senators to work 

Rees, Phillips and Biggers are 
working over the summer to 
organize the publicity drive for the 
coming semester, in addition to 
working on other graduate school 
and campus-wide concerns. 

Phillips said the group wants to 
reach out to individual students in 
an effort to educate them to what 
the senate is currently working on 
and what the senate could work on. 
Mailings will be sent out and 
departmental meetings will be held 
for this purpose, he said. 

Rees, who has been elected to 
three consecutive senates, said, 
"The people who get involved are 
people who are political one way or 
another." Mostly they are people 
who run into problems and become 
active as a result, she said. 

Those involved in the senate, at 
least last year, were not close to 
being representative of the 5231 full 

and part-time grads. Only three 
women participated regularly, 
despite the existence of an Af- 
firmative Action Committee, which 
Rees said is her special concern for 
the coming year. 

In addition to participation 
problems, the senate is in the 
process of redefining its role in 
regards to the Graduate Student 
Employees Union, a group which is 
seeking recognition for 

representing teaching assistants 
and research assistants in collective 

While Rees says the relations 
with the union are good, there 
currently is an overlapping of some 
functions between the union and 
the senate. 

One such area is that of teaching 
and research assistant "contracts." 
Rees says no one is quite sure if 
the grad assistants are under con- 
tract or merely have an agreement 
with the administration that they

will work for a certain pay. Until this 
is clarified by the senate or until a 
union is recognized, this is a thorny 
situation for graduates when 
problems arise concerning the 

Currently, the senate is attempt- 
ing to solve a major problem 
concerning tuition waivers for some 
grad students. 

As the senators go about rectify- 
ing these problems, they keep in 
mind that the senate has no voting 
member of the UMass Board of 
Trustees, the supreme University 
governance body. While under- 
graduates do have a student 
trustee, Rees is only granted 
speaking power at meetings. 

"Undergraduates have no 
concept of the problems we face" 
students in the dual role and 
teachers, she said. 

But "you have to build up a base 
before asserting yourself as a 
body," she said.

Police chief to UPenn? 

UMass Director of Public Safety David L. Johnston 
is the leading contender for a similar position at the 
University of Pennsylvania, according to at least two 
members of the search committee there. 

UPenn began their search for a new director last 
spring after a major scandal erupted there over police 
surveillance of activist students, and forced the 
former director to resign. 

Johnston, who was interviewed June 14 for the 
position, was not available for comment this week. 

One member of the search committee classified him 
as an "aggressive smooth talker." 

Several members of the committee telephoned 
different representatives of student government here 
to learn more about Johnston's role in a series of 
student demonstrations held at UMass during the 
spring of 1976. 

At that time, several students alleged the campus 
police were photographing student activists as part of 
an overall plan of surveillance. A subsequent in- 
vestigation by students revealed the photographer 
represented the University Photo Center, which had 
been requested to take pictures of the demonstration 
for the Office of Public Relations. 

One informed source said former student body 
president Jay A. Martus was asked to write a letter to 
the committee evaluating Johnston from a "student's 

Sources say Martus gave Johnston a good 
evaluation, including in his letter that Johnston had 
always been "out front" with students. 

Johnston, 41, received his doctoral degree from the 
State University of New York in Albany. He is married 
and has one child. 

David L. Johnston, director of the Department of Public Safety, may be headed for a 
similar job at the University of Pennsylvania. 

GOPs discuss ways 
to increase membership 


GREENFIELD - A discussion of 
ways to build up grassroots support 
for the Republican Party in Western 
Massachusetts dominated a 
meeting of Franklin County 
Republican leaders here last 

Republicans, with only 16 per 
cent of registered voters in 
Massachusetts, held the meeting as 
part of "Operation Precinct," a 
program which calls for 
establishing personal contact with 
all voting Republicans, In- 
dependents and Democrats whose 
interests are more closely tied to 
the Republican party. 

The meeting was conducted by 
state Chairman Gordon Nelson, 
who at age 35 has been active in 
the party for 14 years. Nelson, a 
devotee of Kevin Phillips, author of 
"The Emerging Republican 
Majority," kicked off the revival 
campaign last March at a St. 
Patrick's Day party in Dorchester. 

Nelson and the party are 
currently fighting the "image" 
problem of Republicans. He says 
people think Massachusettr 

Republicans are "rich Yankee 

The only black senator in the 
country is Republican Edward 
Brooke, Nelson relates, and Nelson 
himself is Jewish and by his own 
admission "not rich". 

Means for combating so 
ingrained a distortion are varied, 
and include appeals to ethnic pride, 
such as the St. Patrick's Day party 
of last March, and low ticket prices 


to Republican events. 

Accordingly, Republican affairs 
do not require a $25 entry fee, nor 
do Republicans host $100-a-plate 
dinners such as the Democrats 
commonly put on. 

Massachusetts Republicans will 
again embrace the basic philosophy 
of less government and more in- 
dividual freedom in their drive to 
add strength to the party, with a 
strong emphasis on pocketbook 

Labeling of candidates as 

"conservative," a dirty word in the 
1960's, has now become "in" 
according to the meeting par- 

But John Finn, who introduced 
himself as a possible candidate for 
District Attorney, cautioned that 
ideological rigidities should not 
overcome a candidate's 


The reorganization work of 
which Nelson is most proud is his 
recruitment of youthful 

Republicans for top positions in the 
state's party. 

There is no standing-in-line for 
promotion is so lean a minority, and 
among the younger Republican 
leaders working to revitalize the 
party are Curtis Frazee, 22-year-old 
chairman of the Worcester 
Republican Committee, Lorrie 
Polumbi a 19-year-old woman who 
is chairperson of the Republican 
City Committee of Lawrence and 
Jaimie McNiff, a 24-year-old who 
heads up the Salem Republicans. 

Not brought up at the meeting 
was the Republican position on 
nuclear power in New England and 
its opponents.

Status of women 

» • 

topic of convention 


A regional conference to 
assess the status of women and 
identify barriers to their full 
participation in all spheres of 
life will be held on Saturday in 
the Springfield Symphony Hall. 

The International Women's 
Conference, as it is being billed, 
is one of five regional con- 
ferences to be held in 

The conferences are man- 
dated by an act of Congress, 
stipulating that 150 conferences 
be held nation-wide in order to 
"assess tne status of women in 
all areas of life, and to identify 
any barriers to their full and 
equal participation in all spheres 
of life, public, and private." 

The Springfield meeting will 
include workshops and arts and 
crafts exhibits. The event is 
open to the public for a fee of 

One of the goals of the 
district conference will be to 
elect six delegates who will 
carry the recommended 
proposals from the workshops 
to the national conference 
which will be held in Houston, 
Texas from November 17 to 21. 
Representing women from a 
diversified spectrum of ages, 
races, classes, incomes, ethnic 
and religious backgrounds, 
these women will t 'ected to 
speak for the en of 

Western Massachu. 

Topics to be d^ j n the 

conference will ir i legal

health care, on, and 
many others 

The Hous. jrnational 

Women's C< nee will 

culminate with e recom- 
mendations given to President 
Carter and the National 
Committee on the Status of 
Women. All conferences are 
meant to have a dual purpose; 
to assess the status of women 
for input into legislative 
recommendations, as well as to 
be an information sharing 

The United Nations 
designated 1970 to 1980 In- 
ternational Women's Decade. 
After the 1975 International 
Women's Conference in 
Mexico City, Congress passed 
legislation allocating $5 million 
for the purpose of a national 

observance of Women's 

Introduced to Congress by 
Congresswomen Bella Abzug, 
Margaret Heckler, and Patsy 
Mink, the bill allocated $65,000 
to Massachusetts, with the 
Springfield district conference 
granted $3,000 from the state's 
total. Donations supplement 
the Congressional funding. 

Registration will be con- 
ducted from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. in 
Symphony Hall. At 10 a.m. 
Margaret Constanza, assistant 
to President Carter will speak. 
Workshops on various topics 
will be conducted throughout 
the day. 

In conjunction with the 
conference, Baystate West will 
have fine arts displays of area 
women artists. An exhibit 
entitled "Women on Women," 
scheduled to begin in July at 
the George Walter Vincent 
Smith Museum will be 
previewed the day of the 
conference, and a continuous 
slide show of outstanding 
works by area women artists 
will be in view. 

Also in conjunction with the 
conference, Johnson's 
Bookstore has set up a display 
for, by, and about women. 

The conference is scheduled 
to conclude at 5 p.m., with a 
reception in Symphony Hall 
sponsored by Massachusetts 
legislators, national legislators, 
and municipal officials. 

Women should register in 
advance to ensure the 
workshops of the choice, lunch, 
and child care, as 1,500 women 
are expected to attend the 

Pre-registration can be 
obtained by calling Evelyn

There is still room for area 
artists who would like to exhibit 
their fine arts in Baystate West. 
The woman to contact is Jill

the plane, a Piper Shawnee, come 
down from the sky from the South- 
east, hit the ground, and flip over. 

Both MacDonald and Richard F. 
Caldwell, another eyewitness, ran 
to the plane until, when they were 
15 feet away, the craft blew up. 

It was an "instant incineration,' 
said MacDonald, who explained 
that both the flames and explosion 
occurred simultaneously 

Caldwell said he was walking to 
work at the tree division of the 
UMass Physical Plant when he 
heard the crash. Caldwell said he 
could see the pilot's body har- 
nessed upside down in the airplane. 
The body was motionless, accord- 
ing to both Caldwell and Mac- 

Before either he or MacDonald 
could reach the plane to take out 
the body, the fuel ignited. 

The explosion, said Caldwell, 
"knocked me flat. I started running 
to get out of the flames " 

Later on Caldwell learned the 
victim was a man he had known as 
an aviation acquaintance for the 
last three years. 

Raymond Dion, co-owner of 
Dion Aviation Company in Turners 
Falls, Preble's boss, Monday said, 
most of the dus' cropping jobs in 
the area are flown from the nearest 
airport. However, since Preble was 
doing a "touch up" job, said 
Rogers, he flew from the Turners 
Falls airport instead. 

Preble, who started working for 
Rogers this spring, was Dion's only 
employe, and usually spent from 
one to three hours crop dusting. 

Rogers said Preble began work 
Monday morning around 5:30 and 
was returning, finished, when the 
accident occurred. 

Terrance Mulryan, an Amherst 
balloonist who sails early mornings 
during good weather, said he saw 
the plane prior to the crash. 

Mulryan said he saw the plane 
"heading north over Amherst 
College," while the balloon was 
going east toward Belchertown. 

A few minutes later smoke 
appeared on the campus, Mulryan 
said, who added a few more 
minutes passed before he realized 
what had happened.

Student reorg setback 
The reorganization of the UMass 
student government is "back on 
theory," said Karl Allen. The study 
of revamping the Student 
Government Association was 
originally undertaken in 1973, when 
the Student Organizing Project was 
undertaken. This summer, 
however, represents the first 
serious effort to change the system. 

The project is scheduled to end 
by early July, but Allen said he 
thinks it will last longer. Right now, 
the committee meets Monday, 
Wednesday and Friday mornings 
from 9:30 to 12:30. Today's session 
is in 163 Campus Center. 

Allen said the committee 
members will be establishing 
common grounds before discussing 
models for the reorganization. In 
September, the SGA co-presidents 
and speaker of the house will 
present the final model to the 
Undergraduate Student Senate for 
its approval.

According to the grapevine, 
speculation on Chancellor Bromery 
leaving to another educational 
institution is probably not accurate. 
Bromery is the likely, and logical, 
replacement for Wood. By leaving

The UMass administration and

the first "housekeeping" session 
before actual contract negotiations 

The meeting was held at the 
President's office yesterday af- 

Among the items the two groups 
are discussing in the preliminary 
sessions is student participation in 
the negotiations, which could take 
the form of students sitting in as 
observers, students sitting in with 
the power to speak giving students 
full voting powers.

negotiations seem less than op-

which the Boston and Amherst 
faculty belong.

Bromery said he w:!l attend the 
first sessions between the union 
and adminstration, but hopes to get 
a regular negotiator in his place 

In the meantime, Bromery said, 
faculty salaries will be in limbo since 
state law dictates no salary in- 
creases can be given to unionized 
workers unless they are negotiated 
into a contract. 

About 1600 faculty and some 
staff voted in February to unionize. 
Elections the previous fall between 
the American Association of 
University Professors, "no agent" 
and the campus affiliates of the 
Massachusetts Teacher's 
Association resulted in a run-off

offered the top job at the new 
university, everyone fully expected 
him to go. 

He stayed. He wanted to see 
through his committment to serve 
as vice-president in charge of 
faculty collective bargaining. 

Perhaps the feelings that 
Bromery might leave were caused 
by his near- meteoric career at 

He came here in 1968 as an 
assistant professor in the Geology 
Department, after completing his 
Ph.D. at Johns Hopkins University. 
n 1969 he became head of the 
department and by 1970 was 
serving as vice-chancellor for 
student affairs. When former 
Chancellor Oswald C. Tippo 
-esigned in 1971 Bromery became 
acting chancellor and was officially 
named chancellor by the Board of 
Trustees in 1972. 

Smce then, he has served as 
chancellor tnrough what many call 
the worst years in UMass history; 
the era when Massachusetts 
legislators were forced to take a 
good, hard look at human services 
budgets due to lack of money, and 
Gov. .Michael S. Dukakis proposed 
level-funding budgets for the 

"The UDC offer was very at- 
tractive, but it comes at a time 
when the University of 
Massachusetts is preparing a long- 
range plan and as executive vice- 
president, I am about to begin a 
major collective bargaining effort 
with our faculty. I therefore feel I 
have a commitment to the in- 
stitution to stay on through this 
critical phase," Bromery said. 

After that contract is negotiated, 
Bromery said he is not sure of his 
plans. Private industry remains "a 

Another of his reasons for. 
remaining at UMa,ss is to facilitate 
the transition for a new president. 
His decision to stay, made public on 

Monday, came after UMass 
President Robert C. Wood's Friday 
announcement that he will resign 
on January 1, 1978. 

No doubt Bromery will be 
considered for that job. 

Bromery was under con- 
sideration by the Carter ad- 
ministration for the post of 
Secretary of the Interior, but lost 
out to Gov. Cecil Andrus of Idaho. 
Bromery removed his name from 
consideration for undersecretary. 

Meanwhile, offers keep coming 
in from private industry. Bromery 
said he had also been considering 
becoming a consultant to Africar 
countries on mineral resource 

The offer to become president on 
the new university came as a result 
of Bromery serving on the board of 
trustees of that institution. 

The new university is being 
combined from the Washington 
Technical Institute, Federal City 
College and D.C. Teacher's 
College. Enrollment would be about 
15,000 students. 

Politically, Bromery is now in 
limbo. He must wait for the trustees 
to form a search committee to fill 
the president's job, and then decide 
if he wants his name considered. 

Depending on what the trustees 
want the transition stage to be like, 
Bromery could be spending more 
time in Boston. 

"I spend two days a week in 
Boston anyway,'' he says. 

But he says his first duty is to the 
Amherst campus. With three new 
vice-chancellors there could easily 
be a problem of continuity of 
leadership if he were to suddenly 

Robert L. Woodbury, vice- 
chancellor of student affairs, took 
office last fall, Vice-Chancellor For 
Academic Affairs Paul L. Puryear 
took office a few months afterward 
and a new vice-chancellor for 
administration and finance, James 
L. McBee will start work July 1.

Who says UMass iop brass don t 
chart out the University's future? 
Two of the top men at UMass, 
President Robert L Wood and 
Chancellor Randolph W. Bromery, 
this past week amounced their 
future roles in the University. 

Wood said he will tesign effective

District of Columbia 

Seven years ago when Wood 
took the office of UMass president, 
he estimated his tenure here would 
be no less than five years, no more 
than ten. He announced his 
resignation on Friday, seven years, 
six months, and tvo weeks after 
being named president. 

Bromery also en ered the ad- 
ministration picture n 1970. After 
being a member oi the geology 
department in 1968 and then its 
chairperson, Bromerv became vice 
chancellor of stuaunt affairs in 
1970, acting chancellor in 1971, and 
was named to this uost in 1972. 

Before either Bromery or Wood 
attained administrative roles at 
UMass, Joseph P. Healey, a trustee 
since 1959, became chairperson of 
the trustees. 

As chairperson, Healey is an 
influential position for supporting 
candidates to the UMass ad- 
ministration. Healey presided 
during the time when Wood was 
selected as president and Bromery 
as vice chancellor and then 

But how does Wood's, 
Bromery's and Healey's concurrent 
time at UMass affect the future? 
Wood, with his backg-ound in 
urban affairs before ccming to 
UMass, and now with seven years 
of politicking for higher education, 
may want to become an elected 
official. Why else would he move to 
Boston, the center of New England 
politics? For all practical purposes, 
Wood is now nothing more than a 
lame duck UMass administrator 
with nothing left to do but defend, 
for the last time, the UMass budget! 
and add an autobiography of his 
collegiate experiences to his urban 

Bromery, the choice for president 
of trustees in Washington, D.C, 
could get the nod from UMass 
trustees to replace Wood. 

And if Healey is remembered for 
nothing else, he could be credited 
with a 10 year coordination of two 
successive presidents from within 
the University. When another 10 
years are over, a third U Mass- 
groomed administrator, Robert L. 
Woodbury, could succeed 

Woodbury, the acting vice 
chancellor of student affairs (the 
same post Bromery once held), 
shares in-house promotion con- 
siderations with two other vice- 
chancellors and a vice-president. 
Provost Paul L. Puryear, 
theoretically number two behind 
Bromery, has been a controversial 
figure on campus since coming 
here in late 1976. His five year 
faculty reallocation plan upset 
many in the faculty, who have been 
hounding him ever since the plan 
was announced. Appointing 
Puryear to succeed Bromery — 
should Bromery leave, could be a 
poor political move by the ad- 
ministration now that a faculty 
union exists on campus. 

James L. McBee. the other 
UMass vice chancellor, does not 
even take on his responsibilities 
over campus finances until July 1st. 
McBee would be still adjusting 
himself to his new post at UMass in 
January when Bromery could be 
taking in the president's job. 

The man who could cop the top 
spot in Amherst or in Boston is 
Earnest Linton, the vice president 
of academic affairs in the 
president's office. Linton became 
Wood's assistant in 1972, and has 
been handling routine affairs in 
Wood's abscence. He is then, 
qualified to succeed both. 

Linton may even be Healey's top 
choice for UMass chancellor, with 
Woodbury as the alternate. With 
either man, Healey will be getting 
someone groomed to the ways of 
UMass administration. He could 
not have planned it better.

ever since. 

He said it to a Real Paper reporter 
last fall, where it appeared along 
with a "trail balloon". Wood's plan 
to run for public office. 

But Wood denied on Monday 
that he has any plans to run. 

"What I really want to do is take 
six months and think about what I 
want to do next," he said. 

As Wood weighs his options, 
however, it seems a consideration 
of a bid for some elected seat is in 

For one thing, U.S. District Court 
Judge Arthur Garrity named Wood 
to head a court-appointed advisory 
panel to monitor intergration of the 
Boston school system last August, 
an appointment which introduced 
Wood's name to the rank and file of 

Wood also comes from a strong 
Harvard and MIT background. He 
is former chair of the Department of 
Political Science at the 
Massachusetts Institute of 
Technology and Director of the 
Joint Center for Urban Studies of 
MIT and Harvard. 

Most importantly, Wood was 
first undersecretary and later 
secretary of the U.S. Department of 
Housing and Urban Development 
during the Johnson administration. 
Before he became UMass 
president, Wood headed the 
Massachusetts Bay Transportation 

He authored what is now referred 
to as a "pioneering study" on 
"Suburbia: Its People and Their 
Politics" in 1958 and co-authored 
the college text "Politics and 
Government in the United States". 
Wood has kept his name 
prominently before the people of 
Massachusetts in his years as 
president of the University. Most 
Recently, Wood's name has ap- 
peared in the media alongside those 
of the legendary Kennedys in the 
John F. Kennedy library dedication 
last week. 

Wood, who fought a 
monumental battle to get the library 
built on the Columbia Point campus 
of UMass-Boston, reaped the 
political benefits when the Boston 
Globe, with a subtlety all their own, 
printed a picture of Wood chatting 
with Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, 
captioned "Faces in the crowd". 
Wood has also managed to open 
two new campuses at Worcester 
and Boston. 
The text of his resignation 

statement reaas like the beginning 
of a drive for elective office — 

"We have begun to contribute to 
the health care of our citizens not 
only by training physicians 
specializing in primary care but by 
providing medical services in state 
institutions and under served 
regions of the Commonwealth. We 
have recognized special obligations 
to the city of Boston not only by 
making high quality education 
broadly accessible, but by working 
with the city to improve the quality 
of its public services and programs. 
"We expect that the Harbor 
Campus and the John F. Kennedy 
Library will serve as a catalyst for 
revitalization of the Columbia Point 
peninsula," he wrote. 

But Worcester and Boston are 
not without their problems. 
Currently, the Worcester medical 
school is striving to break out of a 
deficit which recently caused the 
trustees to transfer thousands of 
dollars of trust fund monies from 
Amherst and Boston to that 
campus to pay bills until the end of 
the fiscal year on July 1. 

Wood's drive to centralize the 
administration from his One 
Washington Mall office, with a rent 
of $146,000 per year, caused the 
former Chancellor of the Amherst 
campus, Oswald C. Tippo, to 
resign. The then-Vice-Chancellor 
for Student Affairs Randolph W. 
Bromery became acting chancellor, 
and was subsequently appointed 

Wood has also been increasingly 
at odds with faculty on both 
campuses. After faculty went 
without salary increases for three 
years during the height of 
Massachusett's fiscal crisis, a drive 
to unionize the faculty at both 
Amherst and Boston widened the 

Last spring, in a dispute over 
Provost Paul L. Puryear's first stage 
of a five-year master plan for the 
campus, faculty voted to ask for 
both Puryear's and Wood's 
resignation. Bromery escaped the 
censure, even though he asked 
faculty to include him if they in- 
cluded Puryear. 

An increasingly hostile board of 
trustees has been giving Wood its 
problems also. Only four of the 
board which appointed Wood now 
remains. Most are appointees of 
Governor Michael S. Dukakis, 
Wood's political foe. 

A recent vote to establish a 120 
tuition waivers for UMass athletes 
ended in a tie with Wood casting 

the deciding vote in favor of the 

Wood has proved a worthy 
opponent of the governor. For 
three years running. Wood has 
been able to maintain his office 
space in One Washington Mall 
rather than be forced to move to an 
older government building, which 
would also be cheaper. 

Every year, Dukakis proposed a 
drastic cutback in funds for Wood's 
office and every year the House of 
Representatives would uphold 
Dukakis' plan. But each time the 
senate would restore Wood's 

Dukakis has even tried to 
challenge fiscal autonomy at 
UMass, where it is up to the 
President to determine how much 
money is allocated to the different 
sections regardless of what the 
state house passed. He failed. 

Student Trustee Pinky Batiste 
said Wood has done "a tough job in 
the past couple of years", referring 
to fights with Dukakis over his 
office and budget. 

"He's done a lot for :he 
University that people don't 
realize," she said. 

Student Government 
Association President Jon A. Hite 

"What we've all got to remember 
is that the governor has not had a 
committment to public higher 
education. Wood has been the 
point man. It's obviously worn on 
him," he said. 

But Wood does not seem worn, 
just taking a breather before his 
next fight. 

The Real Paper has described 
Wood as a "political scientist by 
academic specialty and intellectual 
politician by inclination". In their 
article last October they quoted 
Wood as saying of his new ap- 
pointment on the advisory panel, 
"If anybody can deal with Kevin 
White and the Boston School 
Committee, I can." 

Wood has also sold his home in 
Lincoln, Mass. and bought new 
property in Boston's South End. 
From his new home. Wood 
could be preparing for an assault on 
the gubernatorial primary in 1978 
More than likely, he could have his 
long-range sights set on being 
mayor of Boston. 

But who would want to be mayor 
of Boston? 

A "political scientist by specialty 
and intellectual politician by in- 
clination" just might.

Track Is back in town 

It takes a lot longer to run 100 yards when you do It bass-ackwards. 

Summer is back in Amherst, and 
with it come the Sugarloaf track 
meets. The sixth summer of Thurs- 
day evening meets began this past 
week at Derby track, UMass, and 
will be held there every Thursday 
until mid-August. 

Races for kids start at 4 p.m. and 
include dashes, a one-lap race and 
the long jump. For the rest of us, a 
full slate of track and field events 
begins at 5 p.m. and usually lasts 
until about 7. 

The meet traditionally begins 
with the mile run, divided into 
several heats, by ability, so that one 
gets to run against people of similar 
ability. Following the mile are, in 
order, the 100-, 220- , and 440-yard 
dashes, the 880-yard run, the long 
jump, shot put, discus, javelin, 
hurdles, and a special event which 
varies from week to week. This 
special event may be a relay race, a 

run at an odd distance, a short 
cross country race, etc. 

The special event for the July 14 
meet will be particularly interesting 
since it will be the Road Runners 
Club New England championship 
for the one-hour run, a race to see 
how far one can run in an hour. The 
last event in every meet is always 
either a two-mile or three-mile run, 
each being held on alternating 

In runners' jargon, these meets 
are called "development meets" or 
"all-comers meets." They are 
intended to give people a chance to 
enter a few races without having 
the pressure of having to win or 
score points for a team. The races 
sometimes attract over a hundred 
competitors, some of them entering 
two or three events, and some of 
them coming from as far away as 
Pittsfield and Brattleboro.

Capsule reviews: 
four-star 'Rocky' 


'Ch e X)in yl Ju n kit 



4 Imported French champagne, 
Chatuea Lafite Rothschild 

3 New York State Dry Cham- 

2 Cold Duck (or Duckling) 

1 Boones Farm New Improved 
Rotgut Champagne — three flavors 

4 Rocky — one of the year's best 
films, this movie tells the drama of a 
bum and a very poor fighter who 
gets one shot at the heavyweight 
crown. This is not a film about 
boxing, although it plays an integral 
part in the movie. Stallone, as 
Rocky, is superb, and Talia Shire 
should have won the Oscar for her 
performance. The entire cast is 
excellent. If you haven't seen this 
one yet, get moving!! 
3 The Three Musketeers — this 
movie is only being shown once, in 
the Campus Center Auditorium on 
Tuesday, June 7, at 8 p.m. The 
movie is loosely based on the novel 
by Dumas, The Three Musketeers 
(original title!). It is true swash- 
buckling fun, filled with wine, 
women, swords and song. A treat, 
and admission is free. 
3.5 The Sting — Paul Newman 
and Robert Redford combine forces 
and talent to outwit Robert Shaw in 
a very funny, engrossing story 
about con men and their world. The 
acting is excellent, and the script is 
first rate. The sole flow is the plot; it 
seems to me that the "scam" is a 
little weak, and hard to believe. 
Kudos to John Scarne, who did the 
card tricks - they were the best 
part of the film. 

3.5 Murder by Death — Neil 
Simon's new murder mystery is a 
definite must for anyone that 
enjoys comedy or mystery. The 
world's five greatest living 
detectives are invited for a dinner 
and a murder by Lionel Twain 
(Truman Capote). Peter Falk, 
^mes Coco and Truman Capote 
were excellent. Very well done, the 

dialogue, acting and scenery was 
superb. You may die laughing! 
1.5 Airport '77 - Disaster films 
are, in general, very poor. There is 
no suspense — have you ever seen 
one in which everyone good dies? 
This film is marred by poor acting 
and an atrociously poor dialogue. 
Very little suspense, and as hokey 
as an Oakie from Muskogee. If I 
were Jack Lemmon or Lee Grant, 
I'd sue the producers for putting me 
in that trash. 

4 Annie Hall - I believe that this 
film, about the love affair of two 
helpless neurotics, is Woody 
Allen's best effort so far. Sup- 
posedly autobiographical about 
Allen and Keaton's affair, the film is 
original, beautiful and all too 
hilarious. Very poignant drama 
underneath a very typical Woody 
Allen style. 

2.5 Fun with Dick and Jane - a 
very 'cutesy" film about a happily 
married couple that experiences 
severe budgetary problems when 
the hubbie loses his lucrative job. 
Everything is dismal until they 
become the latter-day Bonnie and 
Clyde. A film with little substance 
and a happy ending, but an en- 
joyable and entertaining diversion 
for two hours. 

Let's go to the Rat! 

Various Artists; LIVE AT THE 
RAT; Rat Records — a compilation 
of Boston's underground bands. 
Much better than the similar 
albums from CBGBs and Max's 
Kansas City in New York. If radio 
played rocknroll nowadays, many 
of these songs would be hits, but 
since it doesn't, major record 
companies are slow to sign new 
rocknroll groups; thus, local label 
records like this one are essential. 
Available in the Boston area. (PA) 

Mink DeVille; MINK DeVILLE; 
Capitol - white R&B seems to be 
one of the mre distinctive trends of 
1977. The critical and occassionally 
commercial success of Bob Seger 
(finally), Bruce Springsteen (as 
popular in '77 as ever), Southside 
Johnny and the Asbury Jukes, 
Graham Parker and the Rumour 
and the return of the original, Van 
Morrison, all serve to point up *hat 

fact. One band, Mink DeVille, from 
the much-heralded New York 
scene, has taken all of these in- 
fluences as well as several more 
churned them up a little, and tossed 
them back at us. The problem is not 
that they are more derivative of 
white '70's R&B than they are of 
the original stuff but rather that 
they are not doing anything that 
hasn't been heard before. A good 
album, but far from a great album. 

Reddy Teddy; REDDY TEDDY; 
Spoonfed - another local Boston 
album, by a group not represented 
on the Rat LP. Excellent hard rock 
with influences from the Who, 
Airplane and others. One of the 
very best records of the past vear 

The Saints; CM) STRANDED- 
EMI (import) - take a touch of the 
Ramones, add a little Damned, and 
presto!, you've got one of the best 
underground bands of the year. 
I he album is excellent straight-out 
stun-guitar rocknroll, replete with 
all-important hooks. It's not out 
over here yet, but when it arrives it 
will be on Sire Records; look for it 

Thundertrain; TEENAGE 
SUICIDE; Jelly - the third local 
Boston LP released so far. Just 
because a record is hard rock from 
a small label, it doesn't 
automatically mean it's good. This 
type of self-consciously "teenage" 
obnoxiousness was done better by 

Brownsville Station three years 
ago, before it was even in vogue.

QrZatest Hits 

DC5 crash on 

Neglected classic of the week: 
The Dave Clark Five; GREATEST 
HITS; Epic — non-stop crash-bang 
no- holds- barred rocknroll. Forget 
the Beatles, forget the sex Pistols, 
forget everything you've ever 
remembered, for this is the real 
thing. You get all the greats, "Over 
and Over", "Glad All Over", the 
raunch classic "Do You Love Me", 
my fave rave "Catch Us If You 
Can", et al. Not a weak spot to be 
found. This band is to England 
what Paul Revere and the Raiders 
was to America. I'M explain the 
connection next week when I 
review the Raiders' greatest hits 
record. (PM)

Reviewed by David Santos 

Published on the fiftieth an- 
niversary of the 1927 Mississippi 
River Flood, Deep'n As It Comes is 
an exquisite, thought-provoking 
historical text on one of nature's 

most potent natural forces. As a 
complete documentary, we 
couldn't have asked for a better 
finished product. 

The research is exhaustive; 
statistics are amply provided, but 
do not overwhelm the book. 
Rather, Deep'n As It Comes in- 
terjects personal experiences and 
tragedies. It is here that the 
character and beauty of the book 
shines; the essence of human 
struggle and compassion against a 
force they no longer controlled. 

As judged from Daniel's 
research, the extent of the 1927 
Mississippi River flood can only be 

termed awesome: 16 million acres 
of land flooded in seven states, 
millions lost in personal property 
and the toll on human lives. 

The cause of the flood? Well, it's 
not just because it didn't stop 
raining; man's activities on the river 
and surrounding land directly af- 
fected the Mississippi. Extensive 
destruction of watershed and 
floodplain areas, as well as 
"taming" the river, simply 
magnified the problem. Basically, 
you cannot tamper with a river 
without serious consequences. A 
river is a dynamic, natural process 
that is ever-changing, ever- 


Deep'n As It Comes is more than 
just a documentary on a 
devastating flood; it should be a 
primer for those who choose to live 
and develop along our rivers. No 
matter how silly it sounds, everyone 
living in the Pioneer Valley should 
read this book and then wonder 
aloud about the current plans to 
dam up and tame the Connecticut 

Fascinating reading from start to 
finish, Deep'n As It Comes makes 
for compelling reading, particularly 
the sections on the rescue foces 
and the levees, with remarkably fine 
photographs to boot.

CAOS office 
open weekdays 

Counseling Assistance for Older 
Students, (CAOS), in room 308 on 
the main floor of the Student 
Union, is open weekdays this 
summer from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. A 
staff of 14 persons provides 
academic, personal and career 
counseling as well as information 
and referral for older and non- 
•raditional students and adults who 
are considering a return to school. 

CAOS' outreach efforts include 
sponsorship of the Buddy System 
operating out of E-26A Machmer. 
Buddies'' are current older or non- 
traditional students who are 
matched with incoming peers to 
offer information, support and the 
voice of experience. 

This weekend the New Students 
Program welcomes 43 older 
students admitted for the fall 
semester. The Buddy System 
should significantly ease their entry 
into the University community. 

In addition to counseling and 
information assistance, CAOS 
supports older and non- traditional 
students by research in areas of 
major concern to this growing 
percentage of the University 
population. The Non -Traditional 
Student Needs Assessment, which 
explores the problems of old'V 
students at UMass, is now available 
for sale in rough draft or 
copyrighted versions at the CAOS 

The Community Profile, now on 
its way to press, surveys towns 
within a 25- mile radius of the 
University in geographic- 
demographic terms to provide an 
overview of housing and living 
possibilities for incoming or 
returning graduate and un- 
dergraduate students unfamiliar 
with the valley. 

This profile, also known as "The 
Where to Look Book", should be 
out in early July. Summer research 
efforts include a financial aid in- 
formation booklet that will attempt 
to clarify resources available and to 
sort out the complexities of the 
application process. 

CAOS also sponsors a lab course 
in Counseling Skills open to 
everyone during the second 
summer session. 

Ah older and non-traditional 
students should visit or call the 
CAOS office at 545-0057 to learn 
more about tne support system that 
exists to serve their needs.

Checks thru summer 
for Gl Bill students 

Gl Bill students continuing 
school in the fall with less than a 
month's break, should have no 
interruption in VA checks between 
terms, according to William F. 
Connors, director of VA's Boston 

The only condition is that vets be 
continuously enrolled or 
preregistered early enough to allow 
for processing of paper work. 

This announcement overrides a 

previously announced procedure 
that would have caused a break 
between summer and fall checks 
for many students. 

Students with questions con- 
cerning the new payment 
procedures or the new relaxed 
guidelines affecting summer 
students should contact their 
veterans representative on campus 
or their local VA regional office.

Paperback library 
needs donations 

The Jones Library Paperback 
Book Exchange needs soft cover 
titles on any subject. The exchange 
was established last December, and 
has been a success as a place 
where Amherst's readers can pick 
up popular fiction at no cost. The 
idea is to either take books, give 
them, or do both. In the last two 
months, however, rotating stock of 
adventure stories, mysteries, 
science fiction, and novels has been 
substantially diminished. New 
contributions are needed. 
Paperback books can be left at the 
library during regular open hours.

For a few hours this past Friday, 
a few hundred people got together 
on the grounds near Franklin Dining 
Commons for the Elderhostel Arts 
and Crafts Festival. 

Elderhostel is a program which 
involves senior citizens all over the 
country, who attend one of ap- 
proximately 30 universities for a few 
weeks, taking between one and 
three courses in topics such as how 
to produce a TV show or write a 
magazine article. The senior 
citizens live in the dorms and eat in 
the dining commons, all at a low 

Students in one of the 
Elderhostel courses, "The Arts, the 
Community and You", decided last 
week to put on Friday's festival 
and, on two days notice and with a 
$50 grant gathered some local 
entertainers and craftspeople 
together to put on the fair. Ac- 
cording to Cheryl Weinberg of the 
University Conference Services, 
who make living arrangements for 
the Elderhostel, the fair was at- 
tended by a few hundred people 
and "went over real well' .

sterilization. These funds are used 
to convince Indian men and women 
to become sterilized, with radios 
sometimes given as bribes. 

A spokesperson for the Western 
Massachusetts Sterilization Abuse 
Committee, whose aim is to 
develop a specific strategy for 
attacking the problem, said that 
those who would like to work to 
stop sterilization abuse should call 
Suman Bohm at 256-6019. 

A member of the audience said 
that women should be informed of 
their rights, including the right to 
give voluntary consent to the 
sterilization operation free from 
pressure, coercion or intimidation, 
the right to be told of the per- 
manency and danger of the 
operation and the right to be in- 
formed of alternative methods of 
birth control. She ended by saying 
that a woman's -ight to choose 
must be supported.

Gathering focuses on 
sterilization abuse 


Sterilization abuse was the 
central theme of a community get- 
together June 10 at St. John's 
Church designed to present both 
culturally and educationally the 
problems of sterilization abuse for 
Third World women and women in 

Held in Northampton, the 
evening's pot luck dinner, music, 
dance, poetry and slide show 
served to inform people about the 
case of Norma Jean Serena and to 
make people aware of the extent to 
which sterlization abuse of women 
of a child-bearing age occurs. 
Norma Jean Serena, a Native 
American woman, was sterilized 

against her will because of her 
"socio-economic position" and 
whose children were placed in 
foster homes. 

After the dinner, Blue and Kathy, 
two area protest-folk singers did 
several songs, two of which were "I 
Ain't Satisfied" and the Holly Near 
song "Sister, Woman". The first is 
about women singing about 
repressions suffered in society and 
the second about the effects that 
women in a prison in Southern 
California have after being drugged 
with Thorazine. 

Annie Carpenter, of Diana 
Ramos' Third World Dance 
Company, then spoke several 
pieces of poetry. Ms. Carpenter 
dedicated her poetry to people who 
know what struggle is; the fight for 
survival. "Nature's Balance," her 
first piece, spoke about people's 
emotions within a universal con- 
text, encompassing time and space. 
Her two other pieces were entitled 
"For My Love" and "For My Black 
Friend." She said the dance 
company is available for any groups 
needing dance performances for 

The last piece of the evening 
directed by Diana Ramos, consisted 
of a dance by Patti O'Neal, while 
Ramos read poetry, Vea Williams 
sang, and Kalil played congas. The 
piece, called "This Child's Gotta 
Live," was choreographed by 
O'Neal and performed to poetry 
from "The Negro Speaks of 
Rivers," by Langston Hughes and 
excerpts from Sarah E. Wright's 
novel, "This Child is Gonna Live." 

Sterilization, a means of per- 
manently preventing men and 

women from conceiving children is 
part of U.S. policy at home and 
around the world. 

Forced sterilization occurs when 
a woman is threatened with being 
cut off welfare if she is not 
sterilized, the health care system 
continues to avoid producing safe 
and reliable birth control or existing 
birth control is not made available 
to all sectors of the population. 

It also occurs when there is no 
comprehensive child care system 
available, when poor gynecological 
services do not stop a disease in 
time to avoid sterilization, when a 
woman is judged mentally defective 
and sterilized without consent or 
when a total hysterectomy is done 
instead of tubal ligation when only 
tubal ligation is necessary. A tubal 
ligation is tying, obstructing or 
removal of the fallopian tubes, 
while a hysterectomy is the removal 
of the uterus. This is a broad social 
definition of sterilization abuse, 
although not all of these are illegal 
under present law. 

Sterilization abuse occurs in a 
society which deprives people of 
human rights. The presentation 
emphasized the fact that it is a 
human right for a woman to 
determine how many children she 
should have. Often times working 
class women are viewed as practice 
cases for training medical students 
in surgical sterilization techniques. 
Forced sterilization .is a logical 
extension of a racist and sexist 
society, in which contempt for the 
poor is present.

Rican women of childbearing age

Fair exhibits mostly gimmicks 


gimmick \gim' ik], n. Slang, U.S. 
a. A secret device by which a grifter 
controls the mechanism of a prize 
wheel; anything tricky, b. Any small 
device used secretly by a magician 
in performing a trick. 

tool \toHI], n. 4. Anything which 
serves as a means to an end; the in- 
strument by which something is

essential to competent scholarship. 
Webster's International Dictionary 

R. Buckminster Fuller, the 
eminent leader of the futurist 
movement, said in his Toward 
Tomorrow keynote address that he 

has dedicated his life to devising 
tools by which mankind can build a 
liveable future. 

While some of the fair's 200 
exhibitors seemed bent on a similar 
plan of action, much of what was 
exhibited under the guise of 
"Toward Tomorrow" could only be 
classified as gimmicks. 

Perhaps part of the reason for the 
lack of substantial ideas results 
from a lack of maturity in the field 
of alternative energy. Perhaps it 
results from a "get rich quick" 
mentality of certain industrious 
New Englanders poised to cash in 
on the latest fad before it gets 

For while Buckminster Fuller can 
look back on his 82 years and note 

the development of the geodesic 
dome and a new field of geometry, 
most of the exhibitors at the second 
annual fair have only solar pool 
heaters and derivations of wood 
stoves to show for their efforrts. 

Much of what was exhibited 
during the three-day event was far 
from being an original or innovative 

There was the "Poor Man's Pool 
Heater", the "Stickler" which split 
logs with little effort, and countless 
variations of dry toilets, which have 
been around as long as man has. 

Which only goes to show how 
little scientific development of solar 
and wind energy has occurred in 
this country. 

Many of the exhibits, at least the

The "Newark Community Co-op Apple Douche Machine" does nothing more 
than pour apple juice. The juice was sold for a mere ten cents a cup. 

Over 1000 turned away 

apolitical ones, were geared toward 

the relatively affluent, suburban or 
rural homeowner who is interested 
in compost heaps and ecology. 

A multitude of wood stoves, 
each of which claimed to heat a 
larger area more efficiently than the 
next, could be purchased by the 
fairgoer for $400 to $2000. 

Organic waste disposal systems 
were featured along with solar 
collector panels which would heat 
your pool or camper. 

The Whole Earth Access Trading 
Co. of Hartland, Vermont was sell- 
ing the "Stickler", a cone shaped 
device which, when attached to the 
wheel of a jacked-up camper, van 
or truck, could split logs in a matter 
of seconds. All one had to do was 
lightly press the log against the 
spinning cone. 

Company representatives 
claimed the device could split a 
cord of wood for 60 cents of gas. 
Their van was idling in neutral. 

For more physically inclined 
futurists, a hand-held splitter, with 
the hammer shaped like a cheese 
wedge, was available for $18.95. 

Snug-A-Bug Solar Homes from 
Hampden, Massachusetts also had 
an exhibit. The company architect 
would have been happy to give 
fairgoers advice on how to install 
solar heating in their homes, visitors 
were told, except he had just gone 
on vacation. 

But his book was available for $7. 

The Tekton Design Corp. of 
Conway had one of the more 
elaborate exhibits. 

Their wood burning stove was 
operating throughout the fair, heat- 
ing water pumped from the 
Campus Pond through a 
showerhead to demonstrate the 
capacity of the stove. 

At 160 degrees, water flowed 
through the shower, into a bucket, 
down a piece of tubing and into the 
pond. The stove retails at $1790. 

For those who weren't looking 
for more modern stoves, an antique 
wood stove display was set up. 

"I think you can get a better buy 

in an antique stove," one woman 
explained, "their fireboxes . are 

One company's poster stated 
that "A good wood stove doesn't

Gunnar Baldwin, who was selling 
Mullbank waterless toilets, said 
most of the sales for these devices 
are still in Scandanavia, where the 
toilets are manufactured. 

"Until we can sell 20,000 of these 
a year in the United States," he ex- 
plained, "it's not worth setting up a 
factory." Mullbanks were selling for 

A more elaborate device, the 
Clivus Multrum, decomposed 
organic wastes from both the bath 
room and kitchen. Both this device 
and the toilets rely on organic 
decomposition of wastes in a 
chamber ventilated by a fan with an 
outlet on a building's roof. 

Clean air and fuel conservation 
advocates have long been pushing 
for a fully-electric automobile, bet

to design objects which would "get 
the most for the least" said Fuller, 
who worked in the Navy and later 
the construction industry. 

He said that many states used to 
require a building's masonry wall 
have the strength of 10,000 lbs. per 
square inch. 

"A bjilding that could carry the 
weight of the Queen Mary only had 
to carry one family," he said. 

Fuller lectured at length about his 
theory of geometry, which is based 
on "insideness and outsideness", 
not one or two-dimensional figures 

which cannot have a reality. 

He scampered about the stage 
playing with oversized necklaces 
and tetrahedrons to illustrate that 
the triangle, and thus the three- 
dimensional tetrahedron are the 
world's most stable shapes. 

In a press conference before the 
speech, Fuller said that although he 
does not deal directly with racism at 
length in his writings, he believes 
racism is "ignorance and disease". 
He said he is "confident that 
humanity is becoming world- 
oriented" and racism will dissolve 
with passing years. 

Humanity is being integrated but 
is still organized politically in terms 
of being separated," he said, the 
world "is tied up with the old way 
of doing things." 

Fuller said he has devoted his life 
to constructing tools by which 
mankind can build a better, more 
livable future. 

"Fifty years ago," Fuller told the 
audience," no one was interested in 
what I was saying."

Fair gate exceeds hopes 


Over 25,000 people attended the second annual 
Toward Tomorrow Fair this year, and Director

any bigger. He had expected only 20,000 this year. 

Instead, Beebe said, it would be better to 
franchise the concept. About 17,000 attended last 

Financial support for the three-day fair comes 
mainly from the University through the Department 
of Continuing Education. The revenues from the 
gates, exhibitors fees and concession fees also help 
Day for the fair. 

The most expensive speaker at this year's fair 
was Ralph Nader, although Beebe declined to say 
how much he was paid. Beebe explained that while 
Nader charged the most, he also drew in a great 
portion of the crowd. 

"A lot of people here wouldn't have come if he 

weren't here," he said, "he know's what he's 

The original idea for the fair came out of a series 
of workshops offered through the Department of 
Continuing Education called "Toward Tomorrow" 

Beebe credits Fran Koster, director of the Office 
to Coordinate Energy Research, with starting the 
fair, with original funding coming from funds for 
the University's bicentennial celebration last year. 

While Beebe denied any conscious 
discrimination in the fair's invitational policy, he did 
say that he was not looking for fifty-fifty 
representation in energy exhibits.

Abortion ruling ignores poor 


"I'm sorry. We can't help you. 
You'll have to go somewhere else. " 

"But I have no money, I can't go 
anywhere else. 

"I'm sorry... 

We're sorry, too. The Supreme 
Court decision last week which 
ruled that states are not required to 
spend Medicaid money for elective 
or non-therapeutic abortions is 
primitive and cruel. 

When women decide to go the 
abortion route, rather than have a 
child, it is usually because they 
have some plans for their lives; to 
fulfill themselves, which must be 
done while they are in a position to 
have a free hand in guiding their 
lives. What man or woman has the 
right to take this freedom from a 

Tie Supreme Court has this right 
and has paved the way for states to 
further curb the woman's free 
choice. This decision affects ap- 
proximately 300,000 women a year. 

V/here will the women go if they 
wan' to have an abortion? What 
will become of the children who are 
not war ted but must come into the 
world because of this decision? Is it 
a plan to incorporate a continuing 
unemployment pool of cheap labor, 
to keep the women out of the work 
force and cooped up in the home? 
Child abuse, abandonment, 
neglect, poverty and back-room 
abortions are probable results from 

this decision for women who 
cannot afford the fee. 

Justices Marshall, Brennan and 
Blackmun accused their six 
colleagues on the Supreme Court 
of backtracking on earlier decisions 
that held that a woman has the 
constitutional right to privacy to 
choose abortion without govern- 
ment interference. But Chief 
Justice Warren Burger reDlied. 

'■:•■■ \*.v , i-.w??'.? 

"The state is not constitutionally 
required to assist her in procuring 

At UMass, abortions are 
provided to women who have 
health insurance. The decision is 
theirs. Privacy is guaranteed. The 
facilities are modern and the staff 
are supportive. Private insurance 
rates for a person without any 

group plan are very costly and 
beyond the means of a welfare- 
dependent person. 

How is a person who cannot 
afford insurance able to obtain an 
abortion through legitimate means? 

Beg, borrow, and steal. 

This is the way the Supreme 
Court has routed the poor, 
pregnant woman. As it stands now 
in our society, if she has money in 
the family, goes to a good school, 
or is protected by company in- 
surance plan, her right to privacy is 
intact and her choice is her own. 
However, if a woman is poor, she is 
stuck. If the state in which she lives 
is sympathetic to her plight, it may 
continue the Medicaid operation. 
But, if not, she must go to some 
extreme, possibly an unhealthy 
environment to obtain her abortion. 

This decision is an example of 
narrow logic, disregarding the poor 
woman. It has undermined her 
fundamental right to freedom of 
choice and privacy. It has put her 
head on the chopping block and her 
unwanted baby up for adoption. 

So, the Nixon- Burger court once 
again has given America another 
landmark setback in the drive to 
preserve the fundamental human 
rights of the people in America. 
Conservatism grows like a weed, 
choking off liberty. How far will it

UMass Board of Trustees 
Budget and Finance Committee 
chairperson Bruce R. Carlson 
has announced his decision to 
resign from the board due to 
dissatisfaction with the state of 
higher education in Massachu- 
setts and personal difficulties 
in attending board meetings. 

Carlson, in a letter to Gov. 
Michael S. Dukakis, dated June 
17-th, said it was time for the 
Commonwealth to "reaffirm 
the commitment to excellence" 
in public higher education. 

Carlson wrote the resignation 
letter the day UMass President 
Robert C. Wood announced he 
would resign the presidency 

effective Jan. 1, 977. 

In the letter, Carlson praised 
Wood as having provided 
"strong leadership" for the 

The Budget and Finance 
head is formerly a resident of 
Williamstown, Massachusetts. 
Business concerns forced Carl- 
son to move to Texas last year, 
and he has been flown up to 
Massachusetts at University 
expense since then. 

The money to finance the 
flights is appropriated from the 
president's discretionary ac- 
count, funds from various trust 
fund interest accounts. 

Carlson said he would resign 
as of June 30, 1977 before a 
new budgetary process could 

Carlson cited "... the 
penchant of a few of the 
recently-appointed members 
and designated representatives 
for utilizing board meetings as a 
platform for the ad nauseum 
exposition of their personal 
positions or those of the 
executive departments they 
represent whether or not they 
are knowledgeable in the 
subject under discussion. Open 
obstructionism rather than 
open debate has, unfortunately, 
become all too frequent."

The second session of collective 
bargaining negotiations between 
faculty and administration will get 
underway today in the Massachu- 
setts Teacher's Association (MTA) 
offices in Boston. 

Massachusetts Society of 
Professors (MSP) President Larry 
S. Roberts said last week's session 
basically consisted of housekeeping 
items which the union represen- 
tatives proposed to the ad- 

The MSP is the Amherst affiliate 
of the MTA. Both Amherst and 
Boston campuses are included in 
one bargaining unit. 

Roberts said student par- 
ticipation has not yet been 
discussed at the talks. The union 
has thus far proposed ground rules 
on how to proceed, he said. 

Administration response 
expected at today's session. 

"Our proposals met with 
response on the part of the 
ministration either negative 
positive," Roberts said. 

He said hopes to discuss student 
participation today. 

The administration's attitude has 
been "open and forthcoming" 
Roberts said of the first session. 
Administration representative 
Chancellor Randolph W. Bromery 
could not be reached for comment. 
A settlement which caused the 
end of a deadlock between ad- 
ministration and faculty, which 
postponed negotiations for several 
months after the February elec- 
tions, is causing new problems 

Former President of the Amherst 
Chapter of the American 
Association of University 
Professors Joseph S. Larson said in 
a recent telephone interview that he 
has filed four complaints with the 
state's labor relations commission 
against the administration-faculty 
agreement, which enabled 
negotiations to begin. 

The agreement called for a new 
election to be held for department 
chairpersons, to determine whether 
they wanted to be included in the 
bargaining unit. The agreement 
also redefined several of the groups 
included in the unit in the original 
ruling by the Massachusetts State 

Labor Relations Commission. 

Larson said the two groups are 
"agreeing to change the unit 
illegally" since the change has 
occurred after the commission 
ruled on it. 

Larson said it is "discriminatory" 
to let the chairpersons vote unless 
they let all sectors of the unit vote. 
The decision to allow the new 
election to occur and to redefine 
the other groups, which include 
certain categories of visiting 
professors and part-time 
professors, is "arbitrary and 
capricious", according to Larson. 
"Should the unit be changed that 
much, I will insist there be another 
election," he said. 

Larson said he hopes to be meet- 
ing with MTA and commission 
representatives sometime in July to 
air his complaints. 

Meanwhile, the faculty un ; t, 
representing 1600 University 
teachers is filing prohibitive practice 
charges of their own against the 
UMass administration. 

In a telephone interview Monday, 
Roberts said the union is filing the 
charges as a way of getting the 
agreement before the commission. 
There is little precedent for post- 
commission ruling changes in the 

Roberts said the charges are 
being used as a "mechanism" to 
get the changes back before the 
commission so that "legal avenues 
are followed." 

"In the meantime, we can 
bargain on other issues," he said. 
Roberts said the union has 
proposed that the American Ar- 
bitration Association conduct the 
elections for department chair- 

Roberts said he doesn't know 
what affect Larson's complaints 
could have on negotiations. 

"That depends on what the 
commission does," he says. 

When the faculty voted in favor 
of a union last February, the UMass 
Board of Trustees followed up with 
a March decision not to recognize 
the union due to its composition. 
Strong opposition was voiced to 
the inclusion of the nearly 100 
department chairpersons in the unit 
because they are considered 
"management" by the trustees.

Budget ironing out 


JUNE 29, 197/ 

JUNE 29, 1977 


The loose ends of the UMass 
budget are currently being tied 
together in a joint conference 
committee at the state house in 
Boston. Once this committee - 
composed of three state 
representatives and three state 
senators - irons out the small 
differences between the house and 
senate versions, the budget will be 
ready for review by Gov. Michael S 

Sen. John W. Olver, the other 
Amherst Democrat fighting for the 
UMass budget, recently noted the 
senate has allocated an additional 
$2.4 million to the house version of 
the UMass budget bring the total to 
$74 million. 

Olver, vice-chairperson for the 
senate Ways and Means Com- 
mittee and a member of the present 
conference committee, said 
equipment, personnel accounts, 
libraries and financial aid sectors of 
the University were some of the 
areas receiving additional money 
from the senate. 

Another feature of the senate's 
$74.3 million UMass budget, Olver

said, is the "revolving fund" 
mechanism proposed for the 
Worcester medical school. 

Since a revolving fund would 
require collection of all bills, Olver 
said an incentive for a more ef- 
ficient operation. 

The senate, he explained, would 
initially subsidize the program. 

Unlike the house allocation for 
Worcester, the senate's revolving 
fund proposal would allow the 
medical school to expand its 
services and program to its in- 

fended size, Olver said. 

For the Amherst campus, Olver 
said equipment which has been 
allowed to deteriorate, a problem 
.which exists at all institutions, 
could be replaced under the 
senate's budget. 

Olver said there is a fair chance 
that Amherst will get a platform fire 
truck, needed for battling fires in 
high rise buildings. There are trucks 
proposed for both Southeastern 
Massachusetts University and 
UMass in the senate's budget. 

Faculty vacancies could also be 
filled, said Olver, in departments 
and schools "way out of line" in 
terms of accreditation standards for 
faculty— student ratios. 

Olver said the three UMass 
campuses could also receive a large 
proportion of the $1.5 million ap- 
proved by the senate for libraries in 
the state's public higher education 

Matching funds for the federally 
funded National Direct Student 
Loans also received more money 
from the senate, Olver said. While 
the house allocated $1.25 for the -^ 
scholarships, the senate earmarked \ 
$1.45 million.

Women's Day Conference 
elects 'right to life' reps 


A strong, cohesive faction of 
"right to life" women at the 
Springfield International Women's 
Day Conference Saturday elected 
'hree out of six delegates to 
crusade for them at the National 
Women's Conference in Houston in 

Those elected were pro- lifers 
Alberta Settle of Longmeadow, 
Mary Vaz of Ludlow and Laurentia 
Allen of Springfield. Also elected 
were Diane Damilio, Family 
Planning Council coordinator for 
educational services, Sally Garcia 
of Chicopee and Carmencita Jones 
of Springfield. 

Nearly 400 women cast ballots 
for the delegates out of the 1000 
women who attended the con- 

Margaret "Midge" Costanza, 
assistant to President Carter, spoke 
to the women in Symphony Hall on 
the urgent need to ratify the Equal 
Rights Amendment. Costanza said 
that the ERA "simply and bluntly is 
the legalization of women." 

"You and I," she said, will 
become part of the Constitution. 
She said the people against ERA 
would have been the same people 
against social security in 1932. 

"We have to stop treating ERA 
as a social issue, because it is not. It 
is a political issue used to divide 
women," she said. Together, 
women can yield greater political 
power, she said. 

^ On the issue of human rights, 
Costanza vocalized the position 
that we give people the right to 
human dignity, the right to love 
whomever they wish. It is not a 
privilege; it is a right, and it is 

At a press conference earlier in 
the day, Costanza shared the 
podium with U.S. Congresswoman 
Margaret Hecklep (D-Wellesley) 
who served as chairperson of In- 
ternational Women's Day Con- 
ferences throughout the U.S. 
Proponent of the $5 million 
legislation, Heckler spoke about 
women in the federal government. 
Presently there are 18 women 
serving in Congress, she stated. 

In the vast federal government 
she said, there are virtually no 
women moving up into the higher

belief that "Quotas are counter-

Julian Bond 

Georgia state senator Julian 
Bond, speaking before a capacity 
crowd of 2000 in the Fine Arts 
Center auditorium, played upon 
many of the fairgoers' political 
cynicism by describing himself as a 
member of "the second oldest 
profession, made up of the finest 
body of men that money can buy." 

"People who do what I do decide 
what people like you do or not do," 
Bond said. 

In his talk, Bond traced the 
struggle of blacks since they were 
taken to this country up through 
the problems that face them today. 

The Nearings 

Julian Bond 

He expressed his desire to "live in 
a country built on socialist prin- 
ciples. A world that guarantees to 
each of us what we need to make 
our way in this society and provides 
us with an under pinning below 
which none of us will fit." 

Bond said, "We are on ebony 
people in an ivory world." While 
blacks have made progress in their 
living conditions, a relative com- 
parison shows those conditions to 
be declining when compared to 

Bond called for a redistribution of 
income through tax reform, a 
program of full employment, free 
"cradle to grave" health care 
financed o it of the national 
treasury and services operated on 
the basis of need instead of profit. 

There needs to be an end to 
"welfare and capitalism for the 
poor and subsidy and socialism for 
the rich," he said. Men and women 
need to reassert their ability to con- 
trol their own lives through new, 
more organized mass movements 
than those of the sixties. 

At a fair which stressed a simpler 
way of life with a closer com- 
munion with nature, Helen and 
Scott Nearing serve as the best 
example of that type of existence. 
Along with being co-authors of 
Living the Good Life, and other 
publications, they currently operate 
the Social Science Institute of 
Harborside, Maine. They are 
proclaimed as the pioneers of the 
homesteading and "back to the 
land" movement. 

The Nearings, who spoke at last 
year's fair, addressed a packed 
auditorium at the Fine Arts Center, 
but seemed a little more at ease 
during the question and answer 
period at an overflowed Mahar 

Helen Nearing spoke of the 
transition from living in New York 
City, where they were unable to 
control their own lives, to the 
countryside in Vermont where their 
food, clothes, fuel and housing 
were a product of their own labor. 
Scott, who proudly stated his 
age at 94, publicly questioned his 
wife as to her age. 

"Never mind" was the quick 

Their frankness and wit was a 
delight to the responsive crowd. 
Scott did most of the talking as 
Helen sat nearby knitting. 

Questioned by a member of the 
audience on what changes could 
occur in "our democracy", Mr. 
Nearing snapped, "Whose 
democracy? It's not ours. To think 
that would be self-deception." 

Scott attributed his longevity to 
good health. 

"We are healthy," he said, 
"because we live and act in a 
manner that keeps us that way." 
And Helen added, "... by 
sensing and cooperating with 
nature and by grasping the op- 
portunity to help others find the 
good life." 

Ralph Nader 

Ralph Nader, who also spoke to a 
capacity crowd at the Fine Arts 
Center auditorium, called for a 
lower scale of happiness and a 
different definition of freedom than 
the corporations spell out. 

His definition is "one involving 
care, compassion, justice, with a 
sense of limits, thrifts, creativity 
and a feeling of participation, not 

Nader, founder of a chain of 

public intrust research groups, 
spoke of environmental problems 
and the pe : le "who go into the 
mountains a d beaches in order to 
get the frest ir and water that their 
predecessor 100 years ago got in 
their own c mmunity. But now if 
you go swir ning in some of New 
England's r ers, you will dissolve 
before you nk." 

Nader's C nter for the Study of 
Responsible Law is working to 
develop too for citizen action. One 
of these expansion of the 

referendum /ote and the right to 
recall, by popular vote, any 
politician wo is perceived as not 
fulfilling his r her obligation to the 
public. Othtr tools are full access to 
the commt ications system and a 
consumer i ieckoff system where 
common cr isumer grievances can 
be organizf 1 and represented in 
political de r sions. 

Robert Healy 

Robert li oaly, executive and 
political edi' r of the Boston Globe. 
said, "Trm >e out of five self- 
described conservatives now

basically a mservative guy." 

"On the < iergy question, I don't 
think Carter can really decide 
whether to sell it as a crisis or as a 
program which actually will make 
life better," he said. 

"Carter all-in-all seems to be 
enjoying the new job so far; he's 
avoided sor^e of the really major 
mistakes," Healy said. 

He referred to Carter as one of 
the "brightest' presidents but said 
that he is 'subject to change" 
referring to the B-1 bomber and the 
tax rebate system. 

James Constantino 

James Constantino, who heads 
up research and development for 
the U.S. Dept. of Transportation 
was heatedly attacked at the con- 
clusion of his speech by several 
members of the audience. Con- 
stantino spoke to about 100 per- 
sons packed into a basement floor 
classroom at the School of 
Business Administration building. 

Constantino, who said his 
organization provides research for 
use in the private sector, outlined 
the future of public transportation 
as he saw it in the next 50 years. 

He said automated highways and 
roads will become feasible within 10 
years as the country's highway 

system needs renovation. He failed 
to mention renovation of trains and 
bicycles, however. 

At the conclusion of his speech 
he was faced with a verbal assault 
by several staunch supporters of 
bikeways and several who favored 
a revival of a train system. 

At the conclusion of the question 
and answer period, Constantino 
said he disagreed with some of the 
audience's statements that 
Americans would willingly give up 
cars in favor of public trans- 

"If public transportation is to 
compete with private, it must do 
the things private does," he says. 

Among the predictions Con- 
stantino made was the develop- 
ment of pipelines which would 
move freight hundreds of miles 
underground and smaller, more 
energy efficient automobiles which 
"would perhaps go beyond diesel 
and electric sources of power." 

J. von Puttkamer 

Speaking on "The Next 25 Years; 
the Industrialization of Space," 
NASA scientist Dr. Jesco von Putt- 
kamer told his audience the 
National Aeronautics and Space 
Administration is in to a "push- 
pull" planning phase. 

Puttkamer said administrators 
are feeling the push of current 
needs and the pull of future dreams 
in planning projects for the agency. 

Puttmaker joked that NASA is 
"actively recruiting men, women, 
minorities, majorities. . . The basic 
requirement is that the candidates 
must be either male or female." 

NASA has planned the first 
space shuttle launch in 1979 and by 
the mid-1980's plans to be sending 
60 shuttles into space each year, he 

Also in the 1980's is planned the 
construction of "Spacelab", with at 
least one European astronaut 
expected to participate in the 
project, he added. 

Other projects include an orbiting 
space station, a lunar colony which 
will expand into a mining center, a 
Martian colony, and orbiting in- 
stallations providing housing for 
20,000 to 20 million humans, ac- 
cording to Puttkamer. 

Hazel Henderson 

Hazel Henderson, who served on 
Jimmy Carter's Economic Task 
Force during the presidential 

campaign, spoke on "The 
Emerging Counter Culture." 

She explained the counter 
culture is emerqinq from the final 
stages of industrialization. The 
risks of investment used to be the 
justification of profits for the 
corporations. Now the risks are 
socialized without the people 
benefiting from the results. She 
said it is irrational to expect us to 
"consume" our ways back to 

Henderson said there is a need 
for a growth of consciousness 
where self interests become in- 
significant in respect to the good of 
the community. 

She emphasized the "recognition 
of interdependence" and referred 
to the rebirth of the co-op 
movement as an encouraging sign. 

Henderson is the co- Director of

Barbara Sizemore 

Barbara Sizemore 

Barbara Sizemore, former 
superintendent of schools in 
Washington, D.C., spoke on the 
"Retreat From Equality", including 
in her address the status of 
minorities in education, the process 
of desegregation and the various 
myths and contradictions with 
which our social order is riddled. 

One myth she expanded on was 
that of America's two party system 
of Democrats and Republicans. 

"There is only one party in this 
country," she said, "and that is the 
Capitalist party of America. It has 
two branches. Democrats and 
Republicans. The Democrats 
believe that you should take all the 
currency, spread it around on a 
broad base, and then give it back to 
the capitalists. The Republicans 
believe you should give it to the 
capitalists in the first place and let 
them trickle it down."

Commoner blasts 
Carter energy plan 

John Siltotto 


Internationally known biologist 
and ecologist Barry Commoner 
chose the Toward Tomorrow Fair 
as a forum to decry President 
Jimmy Carter's National Energy 
Plan, attacking the legislation as a 
"covert decision to go nuclear" by 

"It isn't conservation," Com- 
moner told a crowd of 2000 at the 
Fine Arts Center auditorium, it's a 
covert plan to change the energy 
structure of the United States." 

Commoner, citing statistics from 
the proposed plan, said that by 
1985, 23 per cent of all new energy 
needs will be met by nuclear power 
while only 16 per cent will be met 
by conservation. Currently, 2.7 per 
cent of the nation's power is 
provided by nuclear facilities, he 

Only 1.6 per cent of new energy 
needs will be met with solar collect- 
ing devices, he continued. 

"The plan is being railroaded 
through Congress in three mon- 
ths," Commoner said. Furthermore, 
it was put together in only three 
months, in what he referred to as a - 
"sloppy attempt." 

Commoner warned that the Con- 
gress may further distort the plan if 
they are forced to quickly pass the 

"We need to persuade Congress 
to blow the whistle" on Carter, he 
said and called the tax credits for 
homeowners using solar energy 

"If I were Mr. Car- under- 
standing what I do ah a plan, I 
would want to close the fair down 
because the plan stands for the 
opposite of what this fair stands 
for," he said. 

In 20 to 25 years, Commoner told 
the audience, "supplies of uranium 
which fuel nuclear facilities now in 
use will run out. While Carter has 
blocked the construction of a 
Plutonium breeder reactor which 
would provide fuel for these power 
plants, the President's plan calls for 
the development of alternative 
nuclear breeders using thorium as a

source material. 

The threat of nuclear breeders is 
two-fold, Commoner said, citing 
both the threat of radiation and 
dissemination of uclear bomb 
material. Due to these thn r s, he 
said, the Ca- i allc-vs the 

Energy Secretary to use military 
troops to safeguard nude lower 

He said the plants are . jceful 
facade on what is a 
military operation." — 

"This, in all serious-* .-■ s the 
first step on the long road to 
facism," he said. 

Commoner also said the plan 
would block further development of 
solar energy by making the country 
more dependent upon expensive 
nuclear-generaied electricity 
providing direct heat. Since direct 
space heating is what solar energy 
does best, the poor will be the 
hardest hit as heating costs rise, 
and the costs of other energy- 
intensive products rise. 

"If the plan goes through Con- 
gress, we will have lost the first big 
battta," Commoner told the crowd.

what it set out to do with 

remarkable style and grace. 

The plot of the film is comic book 
in style: good vs. evil; good triumps. 
The beautiful princess Leia is 
captured by the evil forces and 
'ortured to give the location of the 
secret rebel base. Before she is 
captured, she hides plans for the 
Death Star, the self-propelled space 
s'ation where the evil forces reside, 
in a robot, Artoo-Detoo. 

What makes the Death Star so 

important is that it supposedly has 
enough power to destroy planets in 
a single poof. So, Artoo-Detoo, 
accompanied by his sidekick C3P0, 
travels around the universe with 
their newly-found master Luke 
Skywalker, and the oldest living 
Jedi knight in the universe, Obi- 
wan Kenobi. According to the fairy 
tales, the Jedis were the keepers of 
peace and justice, and wielded 
elegant and graceful light sabers. 
There are daring rescues, a lot of 
shoot-'em-up cowboy antics with 

lasers, not pistols, and rocket ships 
chasing or blasting each other all 
over the galaxy. The film's plot is 
quite eclectic; it steals some from 
westerns. Star Trek, Batman, The 
Man from Uncle, Japanese 
samurai, films and many works in 
the sci-fi field.

Neglected classic of the week: 
Paul Revere and the Raiders; 
GREATEST HITS; Columbia - like 
the Dave Clark Five in England, the 
Raiders were an excellent crash- 
bang rock 'n roll group that suf- 
fered musically but benefitted 
financially from a false image as a 
teenybopper band. Other 
similarities abounded: each hung 
on long after they should have 
broken up, each had a member 
named Mike Smith, each played 
absolutely great music. And, like 
the DC5, the Raiders' greatest hits 
album is a near-perfect collection of 
brilliant, simple, raunchy rock 'n roll 
tunes. Search and destroy. (PM) 

No moaning, just singing 


Donna Summer; I REMEMBER 
YESTERDAY; Casablanca - Just 
when the critics were beginning to 
prepare comments like "more of 
the same" and "the Munich 
Machine disco beat goes on" for 
the next Donna Summer LP 
reviews, "The Lady of Love" of- 
fered us a change of pace. Her new 
LP is rather refreshing, at on the 
title cut (and the rest of side one) 
she breaks her usual sensuous 
moaning format and gives us some 
sharp, clear and interesting vocals. 

Side one is a continuous play 
side featuring three cuts covering 
three eras. "I Remember Yester- 
day" has the fresh flapper sound of 
the twenties going into the thirties. 
The cut blends nicely into "Love's 
Unkind," which covers the fifties 
and probably would have been a hit 
if released back then. The vocals 
here remind me of the hit, "Leader 
of the Pajk." The next era is the 

sixties with "Back in Love Again." 
The tune sounds much like the 
Supreme's hit, "I Hear a Sym- 
phony," as it has the same strong 
piano line throughout. The side 
runs back into a reprise of "I 
Remember Yesterday" whose 
sound is much like that of the 
Savannah Band. 

There are two sides to every 
story and the same goes for an 
album. Side two of this LP holds 
two strong cuts (one of which is a 
monster) and a very potent slow 
song. The slow song is her hit- 
bound single, "Can't We Just Sit 
Down and Talk it Over." With this 
cut she proves that "Winter 
Melody" was no fluke and that her 
voice does lend itself to slow music. 

The two strong cuts are "Take 
Me" and "I Feel Love." "Take Me" 
is admittedly more of the typical 
disco product coming from Ger- 
many. Though given a chance, this 
side will take off, but with the flip 

side being excellent and with the 
smash "I Feel Love" also present, it 
will probably remain a quiet 
favorite. The aforementioned 
"monster" on the disc is "I Feel 
Love." This is probably Donna's 
best effort to date. The cut sounds 
like none of her previous product; in 
fact, what it does sound like is the 
8:15 to Chicago. The song sounds 
like a train with its driving beat and 
sound effects emulating a freight 
train's air horn. The listener feels 
the beat and can sense a train 
coming 'round the bend which then 
rushes by and fades into the 

The big aspect of this disc is the 
clarity of the vocals. Summer is 
released to show her vocal talents 
as the emphasis is on her voice 
rather than the driving rhythms of 
the background. With this the idea, 
I feel that this is the LP which finally 
showcases Donna Summer's 

Love affair 
milked 'til end 

It was love at first sight. I first met the Countess at a milking contest a 

the Mountain Farms Mall. She had come all the way from a farm ir 

Winchester, N,H. to take part in the event sponsored by the Dairy Farmer? 

of New England through a company called Milk Promotion Services Inc. 
I was introduced to the Countess 

by the emcee of the program, 

Daniel P. Hurld Jr., a UMass 

graduate who has run the show 

every summer since 1951. Hurld, 

one of the milk industry's hard- 
liners, comes down heavy on the 

Arab oil shieks in his milk pep talk 

which emphasizes the fundamental 

importance of American 

agriculture. But it was the pure 

unadulterated innocence of the 

Countess which held me breathless 

in a state of orgiastic reverie. 

There she was, over 2000 pounds 
of gorgeous protoplasm, the 
quintessence of the ail-American 
cow, the cow next door, the cow 
you would want to bring home to 
meet the folks. When our eyes first 
met I sensed a strong mutual at- 
traction; obviously animal 
magnetism was at work. Her facial 
features reminded me of those of a 
grammar school sweetheart, Cindy 
Holstein, a kosher three hundred 
pound Brown Swiss who had a 
speech impediment and an in- 
satiable passion for baled hay and 
awkward Eskimoes. Anyway, it was 
my turn to grab an udder which 
Hurld regrettably and needlessly 
reminded me was "at the udder end 
of the cow." 

As I grabbed her udder the 
Countess glared provocatively into 
my eyes. I could see she wanted 
more than just a milking. I con- 
tinued to milk her, though, all the 
while reflecting back on fond in- 
fantile memories. 

When my ten-second milking- 
time allotment was completed I 
looked with amazement to my milk- 
ing cup, which was filled with virgin 
milk that Countess had so 
graciously provided. 

The Countess and I drank a toast later that night and the rest is 
history. they took the Countess away from me the next day without as 
much as leaving a forwarding address. All that remained of our affair was a 
few fond memories and a first place blue ribbon.

Luna shoots for the 



My idea of heaven is to sit and 
watch Orchestra Luna for eternity. 

Alice Tully Hall in Lincoln Center, 
New York City, is a small but plush 
auditorium, seating around 1000, 
and far more suited to housing a 
Bach concerto than a rock 'n roll 
band, albeit a very clean and 
mature one. Orchestra Luna's show 
at Alice Tully June 1 1 was the most 
important yet for the band, their big 
coming - up - from - the under 
ground concert. Luna had been 
practicing and tightening their Alice 
Tully hour-and-a-half set for a 
while, including two nights before a 
very receptive Rusty Nail crowd at 
the beginning of this month. 

After an abominable opening act, 
Luna ran out before a wildly en- 
thusiastic audience of about 750 
and immediately cranked into 
"Moonsong." Unfortunately, 
however, what is usually their best 
number this time seemed to illus- 
trate a bad omen of what lay ahead, 
as no sound emanated from Steven 
Perry's normally brilliant guitar 
throughout the entire song. After 
the song ended, the connection 
was corrected and the band 
plunged head first into what turned 
into the best Luna show I've ever 
experienced, and I have 11 others 
to choose from. 

Apart from the disaster of the 
first song, the band was flawless 
and in fact demonstrated the 
plucky self-confidence to introduce 
several new twists to their show, 
including a brand-new Anita Bryant 
parody during the encore, "Nothing 
Like a Dame." 

Orchestra Luna is a perfect blend 
of music (many styles, but mostly 
rock n roll), humor and theatre. 
They are not camp. Like the Tubes, 
they perform short comedic skits 
throughout and around which is 
wrapped their music. Unlike the 
Tubes, Luna's music is good. The 
songs are a wonderous com- 
bination of energy, har- 
mony, insightful and humorous 
lyrics, powerful rhythm and 
eternally- catchy melodic hooks. 
But the most impressive thing 
about the band, moreso even than 
the amazing array of talent inherent 
among their eight members, is the 
degree of honesty and true emotion 
they infuse into their music. At least 
they make it seem that way. 

The Alice Tully show was 
drummer Ace Holleran's last with 
the band; he is to go west and play 
for Pete McCann, a friend of his 
currently on the singer-songwriter 
rise to fame. It's too bad he has to 
leave now, for Orchestra Luna is as 
of this writing close to signing a 
contract with Elektra Records. If 
that pans out, a record will surely 
be in tne works soon. They record- 
ed two of their best numbers for 
Uve At CBGBs Vol. 2, but the latest

Valley zapped by Star Wars craze 

'A good film that 
borders on great' 


Star Wars is one ot those rare 
films that disarms the viewer to 
such an extent that even glaring 
errors are overlooked amid the 
general euphoria. Audiences do 
not just watch Star Wars, they 
urge it on, they stamp their feet, 
they cheer; they become 
emotionally involved. 

Star Wars is not the best film 
ever made. It is not even the 
best science fiction-fantasy film 
every made. It is merely a good 
film that borders on great, one 
that has the ability to pull 
audiences along with it. For 
example, no one cares that the 
apparent leader of the 
democratic rebellion is the 
scion of a hereditary monarchy. 
No one cares that faster-than- 
light space crafts are apparently 
powered by jet engines, or that 
they skip from ground to hyper- 
space with barely a pause. 

Star Wars is an act of faith. It 
will be disappointment hard- 
science sci-fi aficianados with 
its haphazard approach to 
technology. It will also be a 
disappointment to cinema buffs 
who look for counterpuntal 
plot-lines and subtle character 
development. For the rest of us 
it is pure joy. 

The key to Star Wars' 

success lies in the commitment 
on the part of those who 
produced it to give the viewer 
some credit as a sentient being. 
The viewer is not confronted 
with impossible shining cities 
and fantastic womb-like 
planets that carry their precious 
humanoid cargoes through the 
depths of space. Star Wars 
does not talk about a universe 
in which people have .changed, 
but rather about a universe that 
is run by people just like you 
and me. 

The machines are dented and 
dusty; the robots don't always 
work; greed still seems to be 
the primary motivating force 
among the general populace. 

Above all, Star Wars is 
funny. It realizes that it cannot 
approach the level of a 2001 in 
subject matter, so it does the 
next best thing: it makes you 

Star Wars is definitely worth 
seeing. Don't go expecting the 
best film ever made, because it 
is not. Don't go expecting to 
learn a great lesson, or find 
some new insight into 
humankind, because you will 
leave unfulfilled. Just go to see 
a classy movie that attempts 
very little but accomplishes 


Fun with new 


I suppose a word of warning is in 
order concerning this article. This is 
not a "Give-A- Plot-Outline- And- 
Dissect-The-Film" review. That 
type of review is sitting right next to 
this one, written by someone else. 
This one is a review of the star(s) of 
the movie: the special effects. 

Forget Star Trek, forget Space: 
1999 (please), forget 2001; you have 
not seen specials until you've seen 
this film. 

The film begins with a starscape. 
"So what?," you ask, "we've seen 
'em before." True. And we've seen 
the story outline of past events roll 
up the screen before. But have you 
ever seen them roii up the screen 
and recede into the distance at the 
same time? 

As soon as the text disappears 

into the distance, a space battle 
makes its way into our field of view 
from above and (apparently) behind 
us. Laser bolts of green (the good 
guys) and red (the bad guys) flash 
across the screen as the imperial 
starship comes into view chasing 
the rebel ship. And comes into 
view. And. . . my God, it keeps 
coming into view!! It's a big one! 
It's not big in the "Stanley Kubrick- 
big - and - cruisjng - slowly - and - 
inexorably -like - a-whale" sense; 
but it's big in the "you'd-better- 
get - out - of - this - guy's - way - 
because - he's - bigger - and - 
nastier - than - you - and - will - 
chew - you - into - little - tiny - 
pieces big" sense. 

One other thing should be said 
about the ships in this film. They 
look used. Most of the spacecraft

Local artist seeks to cash in 


Mike Moyle, a May 77 UMass 
graduate, now faces the same 
dilemma that many before him have 
faced and many will face after — 
what to do after graduation. But 
Moyle has found what he hopes is a 
solution. He has recently completed 
sketches for an adult coloring book 
based on the motion picture Star 

The project, which is still in the 
development stage, came from an 
idea a friend of his had one day. 

"I was having lunch with some 
friends in Boston," Moyle said, 
"and this woman was saying that 
there are no coloring books for 

Dave Canton 

Mike Moyle 
his art. 


adults." That was the spark which 
set Moyle about on his current 
project. He recently sent the first 
illustrations to 20th Century Fox, 
the distributors ot the film. They 
also hold the copyright on the Star 
Wars name and images. 

Moyle has taken the "degree but 
no job" dilemma head on. 
"Basically, this project and my 
degree project are just to get my 
name known," he said. Moyle's 
Bachelor of Fine Arts degree 
project was a 40- page comic book 
which he has since sent to 
prospective publishers. 

The former Collegian comic strip 
"Phantom Phreak" author prefers 
to think not of what would happen 
if his idea is rejected but what he 
will do if it is accepted by the 
producers. "They (20th Century 
Fox) may decide to publish the 
book themselves, or they may just 
say that I could go ahead on my 
own," he said. If he publishes the 
coloring book himself Moyle has 
more major decisions to make, but 
not ones he hasn't already con- 
sidered. "You have a choice in a 
situation like this," he said. "You 
can try to market it yourself, or hire 
someone to do it for you." 

Moyle feels that using some of 
the contacts he has will provide him 
with an advantage. "I have some 
friends who run the Million Year 
Picnic in Cambridge. It's a comic 
book store, and I could probably 
make contact with other comic 
book dealers through them. And I 
could take the coloring book 
around to the comic book and 

science fiction conventions." 

The major problem with self- 
publication is the cost of printing. 
"Once you try something like that," 
he said, "you have to figure the 
original cost of the printing, how 
much you have to give the 
copyright holders for their royalty, 
and the profit for the retailer. After 
you take into consideration all 
those factors, you also have to 
think about a return for your work. 
This means that I would have to 
mass market the book." Moyle 
feels that his project would have to 
reach the New York and Los 
Angeles markets. "It's definitely 
not a local thrust that's necessary." 

Actually, Moyle is not totally 
caught up in the world of high 
finance. "I'm just a comic book 
junky with a three-to-five dollar-a- 
week habit. Which reminds me, I 
have to cash a check and get down 
town. See how my hand shakes?" 

Besides his art, which takes up 
most of his time, Moyle also plays a 
self-made Appalachian dulcimer, a 
string instrument. 

For all the business talk and the 
music and the art and the humor, 
Mike Moyle is relaxed about himself 
and his future. Someday he'd like 
to illustrate comic books for a 
living. But that's someday. "I don't 
want to set the world on fire," he 
says, "but I would like to strike a 
match somewhere." .... ,. 

Mike Moyle 

look as if they have undergone a 
number of years of hard usage 
before we see them. They're pitted 
and scorched. They aren't 
Kubrick's pristine geometries which 
look as though they're packed 
away when we aren't looking at 

It's this attention to detail that 
makes the film look good. When 
our heroes go into a bar to hire a 
spaceship, the bar is full of the most 
believable aliens you've ever seen, 
from white-furred bear-like 
creatures with four eyes, holding 
glasses in their claws to the green, 
scaly assassin with the blood- red 
disc eyes, anyone that stays on the 
screen for any length of time looks 
pretty damned good. Particular 
credit for good make-up goes to 
Chewbacca, co-pilot of the starship 
"Millenium Falcon." It is very 
difficult to create a believable 
seven-foot tall, furry, quasi- 
chimpanzee-bear. They did it. The 
make-up was more life-like and 
flexible than that used in the Planet 
of the Apes movies. It was easy to 
let yourself believe that this 

creature was truly alien. 

The truly amazing thing about 
this movie is that it was made for 
less money than 2001. Not only was 
it given less money, dollar for dollar, 
there's also a little thing called in- 
flation, making the value of those 
fewer dollars even less. And yet 
Star Wars had nearly ten times as 
many special effects than 20011 

The reason for this, and for the 
title of this article, is that new 
advances in model-making, rubber 
and plastic composition (for make- 
up), computer analysis of motion, 
computer animation and computer 
graphics have been reached. With 
the aid of a computer, animation 
can be done in less time, which 
means paying an animator less in 
salary, which means a lower 

I had considered giving away 
some of the details about such 
beauties as the light-sabers (swords 
with three-foot long blades of 
flickering light), but you can find 
them in recent issues of Time or 
Newsweek magazines. All I can do 
is recommend that you see this 

One of Moyle's sketches 
for his Star Wars 
coloring book. 

movie. In the meantime, you can 
look forward to seeing the light- 
saber duel to the death, to seeing 
what acceleration to beyond the 
speed of light looks like, to seeing 
what a high speed approach for an 
attack run on a space station looks 
like, to seeing a planet destroyed, to 
seeing battles in space, and to 
seeing one hell of a movie!

Trustees may rescind waivers 


The UMass Board of Trustees 
has scheduled an emergency 
meeting for July 28 to discuss the 
possibility of rescinding a vote to 
approve 120 athletic tuition waivers 
passed in June, set up a search 
committee for a new president and 
discuss where to locate the 
University president's office once 
rental money runs out in October. 
A regular meeting of the board 
remains scheduled for the first 
week of August. 

Student trustee Pinky Batiste 
Monday said a controversy over the 
passage of the nine to eight vote 
which initiated the tuition waivers 
prompted trustee Chairperson 
Joseph P. Healy to agree to bring 
up the matter again at the July 

Healy could not be reached for 

A spokesperson for the 
president's office confirmed the 
July 28 meeting but declined to 
comment on the agenda. 

Batiste said Healy agreed to re- 
vote the motion to approve the 
tuition waivers at a special meeting 
two weeks ago, where the board 
discussed collective bargaining 
contract for the local chapters of 
the police union. 

Secretary of Educational Affairs 
Paul Parks handed in his ballot 
before the vote was taken and then 
left, Batiste said, but when the 
issue came to a vote, his ballot was 
not counted. 

The vote was an eight to eight 
tie, broken after UMass President 
Robert C. Wood cast the deciding 
ballot in favor of the waivers. 

In a telephone interview Monday, 
Chancellor Randolph W. Bromery 
said the reason Parks' vote was not 
counted was because a member of 
the trustees called for a roll call 
vote, which meant "proxy" votes 
could not be counted. 

"That's what they're trying to 
say," said Batiste. 

Bromery said he has "heard 
second hand they want to 
reconsider the vote." 

If the tuition waiver vote were to 
be rescinded, Bromery said, it 
would "seriously deplete the Barber 
fund," the fund from which athletic 
scholarship monies are drawn, 
because "I have distributed some 
of the waivers to about 65 
students" for the fall. 

Bromery said the waivers have 
gone "to a variety of sports," in- 
cluding women's gymnastics, foot- 
ball, crew, and basketball." The 
waivers, according to the trustee 
vote, must be given to in-state 

"The discussions at the (June) 
board meeting made it sound like all 
we were discussing were football 
scholarships," Bromery said, "but it 
wasn't the case." 

While football outnumbers all 
other competitive sports in the 
number of people trying out for the 
team, Bromery said the purpose of 
the waivers was to allow women's 
sports to develop without cutting 
into men's sports. 

"I believe the way the University 
is designed now, athletic events are 
a service to students. It gives 
students something to do, an esprit 
de corps," Bromery said. 

"Those students who go out 
there on those evenings and 
weekends and practice are per- 
forming a service to the in- 
stitution," Bromery said. 
. "I want to expand this out" to 
dorm counselors and performers in 
the fine arts, he said. The full tuition 
waiver package, originally 
scheduled to come up at the 
August meeting of the board of 
trustees, should be taken up at the 
regular September meeting. 
Batiste said there is a "good 

chance" the vote will be repealed 
on the 28th when the board 
convenes in Boston since many 
trustees are concerned at the 
closeness of the June vote and the 
way it was handled. Only 17 of the 
26 board members were present in 
June. There are three ex-officio 
members and, currently, one 
vacancy on the board. 

Batiste said she" was surprised 
that 65 waivers had been handed 
out already since it was her un- 
derstanding that "a policy would be 
set up to distribute them." 

No precise breakdown of the 
waivers was available before the 
Collegian 'went to press. 

Associate Director of Athletics 
Robert W. O'Connell said he was 
not sure how the waivers had been 
handed out thus far, because it was 
his understanding that "things 
were still being worked out." 

Director of Athletics Frank 
Mclnerney was not available for 

O'Connell said coaches 
recommend individual athletes for 
scholarship awards from the Barber 
fund, a trust fund set up to provide 
athletic scholarship money. 

Currently, only four varsity sports 
have scholarship money open to 
them. The men's football and 
basketball teams have a total of 
$170,000 and the women's basket- 
ball and gymnastics teams have a 
total of $30,000. 

Another topic the board will be 
discussing, Batiste said, is setting 
up a search committee for a new 

Wood announced his resignation 
June 17 effective January 1978. He 
has served as president for seven 
years, during which time, UMass 
has opened new campuses — 

U Mass-Boston at Columbia Point 
and the medical school in Wor- 

Batiste said UMass-Boston 
student Trustee Judy Baker, a 
member of the trustee policy 
committee that will determine how 
a search committee will be 
selected, has already proposed 
student members for the search. 

While it has yet to be voted on by 
the full board. Batiste said she and 
Baker are asking that a student 
advisory committee of five to seven 
persons be set up to choose two 
students to participate in the search 
committee. The advisory group will 
also serve as a resource group for 
those appointed to the committee. 

The board will also be con- 
sidering where to locate Wood for 
the last three months of his term, 
when the lease at One Washington 
Mall, Boston expires in October. 

Woods office has been a target 
for state legislators seeking waivers 
to cut back on University expenses. 
Traditionally, the house would cut 
back funding for the president's 
office, which would have forced 
him to move to cheaper quarters in 
other state office buildings. The 
senate, however, has always 
restored the funds. 

This year, both the house and 
senate agreed the One Washington 
Mall office was a needless expense. 
When the lease runs out in Oc- 
tober, there will be no funds to 
continue operations there. 

In a press release on the state's 
allocation for UMass for the up- 
coming year, Wood wrote he was 
"enormously pleased with the 
(total) appropriation" and is "now 
studying options for office location 
when (the) lease expires in Octo- 
ber ... " 

Sixty-five of 120 new athletic tuition waivers have already 
been distributed to incoming freshmen, according to 
Chancellor Randolph W. Bromery. But the UMass Board 
of Trustees may vote July 28 to rescind those waivers. 




O'Neill Stands Us Up 

Lt. Gov. Thomas P. O'Neill, who 
had originally planned to visit the 
Student Senate Transit Service last 
Friday during a two-day western 
Mass. swing, will tour the UMass 
bus system and solar house within 
the next few weeks, according to 
his press aide Peter Breer. 

O'Neill spent Thursday in 
Springfield and Holyoke, and had 
hoped to stop in Amherst Friday, 
Breer told the Collegian last week, 
but had earlier commitments 

Breer said O'Neil 1 is interested in 
the UMass bus service because, 
"as an innovative transporation 
idea, it is a good system of mass 

The transit service, which is 
financed by federal and state funds 
as well as student fees, does not 
charge passenger fares. 

Involved with President Jimmy 
Carter's energy proposals, O'Neill 

Thomas P. O'Neill 

will be visiting the UMass solar 
house on Orchard Hill as someone 
"interested in developing solar 
energy," said Breer. 

Part of O'Neill's day-long visit in 
late July will be spent at the 
Geriatrics Authority in Holyoke, 
Breer said. He added O'Neill, as a

Collins On Joint Education 
Representative James G. Collins, 
D-Amherst, was recently named 
vice-chairman of the joint House- 
Se..?te Committee on Education. 
Collins, a UMass Student 
Government Association president 
in 1968, has served on this joint 
committee since his 1973 election 
to the house. 

Collins was unavailable for 
comment Monday night; an office 
aide said Collins was resting a few 
davs at Cape Cod. 
Rape Suspect Faces Hearing 
A 28-year-old Turners Falls man 
is scheduled to appear in Hamp- 
shire District Court Friday to face 
charges of rape and assault and 
battery stemming from an incident 
at a Hadley reservoir. 

Denis P. Gagne was arrested last 
week by Amherst police in the 
UMass Campus Center after a 
Hampshire College woman 
reported to police July 3 she was 
assaulted and raped while returning 
from a swim from the reservoir, 
which town officials have since 
posted off-limits. 

Clamshell Appeal In Doubt 
Clamshell spokesperson Robert 
Reynolds Cushing said Monday 
night he doubts the Alliance will 

appeal its dismissed law suit against 
New Hampshire Gov. Meldrim 
Thomson and Atty. Gen. David 
Souter. The suit was dismissed July 
6 by U.S. District Court judge Hugh 
Bownes in Concord, N.H. 

The $50 million suit charged that 
Thomson and Souter conspired to 
violate the civil rights of the 1414 
people occupying the Seabrook 
nuclear power plant site during the 
May 1st demonstration. 

Cushing said a Clamshell 
coordinating committee decided 
Saturday to refer the decision to 
appeal to local Clamshell groups 
throughout New England. The 
committee will also be contacting 
individuals named in the suit to hear 
their reaction to the dismissal, said 

"It is my feeling," said Cushing, 

one of the Seabrook occupiers, 
"that Clamshell will probably just 
drop it." 

Landry, Burger Wed 

Former Nashua High School and 
UMass quarterback Gregory P. 
Landry and former UMass gymnast 
Jeannine Burger were married July 
2, reported the UMass Alumnus in 
i*s summer edition. 

They were wed in Burger's 
hometown, Beayer Falls, Penn., 
which is also the home of Joe 
Namath, formerly the quarterback 
for the National Football League 
New York Jets, and now of the Los 
Angeles Rams, the Alumnus said. 

Landry, now playing for the NFL 
Detroit Lions and Burger met when 
she was a UMass senior in 1975. 
Landry graduated from Umass in 

UMass student, 23, 
dies in truck crash 

UMass Journalism student Karl 
B. Joyce, 23, of 173 Hayward Mill 
Rd. in Concord was killed July 3 
when a pick-up truck collided with 
a car he was driving on Sanford Rd. 
in Westport, according to Westport 

Joyce was on his way to get ice 
cream with three friends about 9:30 
p.m. when the accident occurred. 

He was pronounced dead at Fall 
River hospital. 

Police have filed multiple charges 
against Jose DeSousa of Fall River, 
who they identified as the driver of 

the truck. He was charged in Fall 
River District Court with driving 
under the influence of alcohol and 
homicide by means of a motor 

Two years ago, Joyce left school 
to hitchhike across northern Africa, 
southern Europe and central Asia. 
He graduated from Concord- 
Carlisle High School in 1971. 

He is survived by his parents, 
Bradford and Loeta; two sisters; 
two brothers; and his grandparents. 
Funeral services were held July 7 at 
the West Concord Union Church.

So you're moving again! What 
else is new. These days you need to 
own a U-haul in order to break even 
on the number of times you travel 
from one place to another. Recently 
we had the opportunity to listen in 
on various students as they were in 
the process of moving. These 
conversations surfaced: 

"How are we going to fit the 
bed? Oh, no it's starting to rain. Get 
that stuff off the roof before it's 
ruined. What next?" 

This townhouse isn't all it's 
chalked up to be. It's more like 
living in the low rises of Southwest 
without the glory. Where is all of 
the cleaning powder you bought a 
week ago? I don't know where to 
start with this mess. I hope my 
financial aid excess comes in on 
time or we will be facing eviction 
before being settled in this place. 
Wow, that is a pretty risque poster 
you're putting up in the living room. 
How about the bathroom, over the 
tub? Hey, you're moving in, great. 
Say, we're your neighbors, man. 

Marty Maceda 

Oh, hi. Yeh, you're really going to 
be glad you moved in here. We 
have the record for the most 
complaints per weekend for any 
other off-campus student. Oh 

"Have you ever lived away from 

"No, but I know I can do it." 

"I know a great place to go in 
town. Let's leave all this crap until 
later and have a little fun before the 
semester starts." 

"How will we find this place 
again after we get high?" 

"That's easy. You just give your 
student number to the campus 
police and they'll drive you home " 

"Wow, UMass really takes good 
care of you. I'm so glad we came 
here instead of going to Stock- 
bridge. Where is that located 

"Beats me, but I figured it's out 
by those farms we passed on the 

"Let's go out and see what this 
place is all about." 

Meanwhile, out in the sticks... 

"Finally we have a place far 

enough away from campus to live 

in peace and quiet, yet only 25 

minutes by car." 

"Yesiree, nothing like country 
living. Where is the nearest store?" 

"About 2 miles down the road 
but they close at 6 p.m. The only 
one open now is on Route 16 
about 15 miles." 

"Guess we better stock up 
before hand. Say, I'll go out and 
dump this stuff in the dumpster 
Where is it?" 

"We don't have one. The owner 
said the dump is down the road 
about 3 miles but we gotta get a 
sticker first." 

"Oh, boy. This thing is going to 
stink for awhile." 

"Say, let's take a ride out in the 
back roads and see what is all 
around us. These mountains look 
so great." 

"Yeh. Come on." 

Rrrrrrrrr. "The car won't start. 
Now what are we going to do?"

On the road and other tales 


When you sign out a UMass 
Student Senate Auto Pool vehicle, 
they give you an Arco credit card 
and a slip to record the mileage and 
make comments regarding the 
vehicle's performance. After using 
their (our) 1970 Maverick for a 
weekend, I had the following 
comments to make: It hacks and 
coughs and wheezes like it has 
terminal asthma, particularly when 
you want to pass some' old grey 
head that's driving its car at the 
speed of a hand operated wheel 
chair. It also throws epileptic fits 
that feel like the Mighty Hulk's got 
a grip on the rear bumper, shouting 
"Hulk angry at puny shitbox UMass 
car," while banging it up and down 
on the pavement. Also, the dimmer 
switch sticks increasing the 
chances of a head-on collision, the 
rearview mirror dangles loosely in- 
creasing the chance of being hit in 
the rear, and it stalls when turning 
increasing the chance of being 
sideswiped. Anyways, SSAP, 
thanks for the use of the car.

Dirty-mouthed prestidigitator 

To the editor: 

The Summer Activities 77 Office 
would like to apologize if anyone 
was offended by the language of 
Bob Kramer who performed with 
his magic show in the Student 
Union Ballroom last Thursday. The 
show was one that should have 
been pure entertainment which 
indeed it was. Mr. Kramer is an 
excellent magician and as to his 
presentation, we are sure it thrilled 

his audience. 

However, there were some 
people in the audience who were 
offended by the use of the Lord's 
name in vain and also Mr. Kramer's 
use of sexist language. Summer 
Activities Office does not support 
such behavior and views. In many 
instances we have no way of know- 
ing how a performer will act from 
one presentation to another. When 
Mr. Kramer performed at the NEC 

convention his language was clean. 
In the future we will strive to make 
performers aware of the diversity of 
our audience here in the valley and 
ask that they not offend people by 
their language and behavior. 

If anyone has any further 
suggestions for us, please feel free 
to drop by our office in 416 Student

Speakers meet to discuss 
situation in Puerto Rico 


Three speakers from Puerto Rico met with 
members of the Amherst-Northampton community to 
discuss current developments in Puerto Rico and the 
history of United States involvement there. 

Ronnie Lovler, a North American journalist living in 
Puerto Rico, who since 1970 has been a member of 
the Federation of Puerto Rican Women and Com- 
mittee to Free the Five Nationalist Prisoners; Rafael 
Robles, a photographer who has been active in the 
pro-independence student movement; and Liro Maria 
Marquez, a copywriter and radio and TV producer 
who does cultural work with the National Center for 
the Arts and the Institute of Puerto Rican Culture, 
gave the discussion and slide show. The event, held 
July 1 at St. John's Church in Northampton, helped 
to examine aspects of Puerto Rico's history, colonial 
structure, social realities and present day alternatives. 

After a pot-luck supper the slide show, which 
presented scenes of Puerto Rico, was shown. The 
slide show described the island of Puerto Rico as a 
Spanish colony, and after the Spanish- American War, 
the Puerto Rico of Jose Marti became a US colony. 
US occupation was institutionalized, 3nd the attempt 

by the Nationalist Party, led by Don Pedro Albizu 
Campos, to free Puerto Rico of US imperialism, and 
later the imprisonment and long term confinement of 
the fjve nationalist prisoners was discussed. 

The discussion spoke of Operation Bootstrap, a 
campaign by Munoz Marin to bring US industries to 
Puerto Rico on a tax free basis. It was shown that the 
monopoly and control of the island's economy by 
North American economic interests has led to 
unequal income distribution, persistent inflation and 
rising unemployment. The highly mechanized in- 
dustries such as oil refineries, petrochemicals and 
pharmaceuticals have caused growing pollution and 
environmental abuse. The food stamp program was 
seen as a way of keeping the Puerto Rican economy 
dependent on US control, and the sterilization of over 
35 per cent of Puerto Rican women of child-bearing 
age was seen to be part of US policy of population 
control. A rising drug rate is an additional result of 
United States colonialism. 

Those discussing the alternatives for Puerto Rico's 
future saw independence as a challenge to 
colonialism. Repressive terroristic activities and 
propaganda have served to sabotage and discredit 
independence struggles.

Students have eyes on 
bargaining session seats 


UMass faculty and ad- 
ministrators have called a tem- 
porary halt to collective bargaining 
sessions, according to represen- 
tatives from both sides. 

But students, under the guide of 
the collective bargaining task force, 
are hard at work to come up with 
student-oriented position papers in 
lime for faculty and administrators 
to take the students' viewpoints 
into account. 

Both acting vice president for 
collective bargaining Randolph W. 
Bromery and president of the 
Amherst local Larry S. Roberts said

Night Live. "Just tell them we are

Future slaughterhouse 

Who says solar energy will be 
used entirely for peaceful pur- 
poses? Looking into the future, I 
see orbiting magnifying glasses that 
will be used to incinerate enemy 
cities like Dresden, Germany, which 
was burned to cinders by U.S. 
incendiary bombs during WWII.

Headline in the July 8 Globe: 
"Neutron bomb tested, awaits OK 
by Carter" What was it tested on? 
Terminal cancer patients? The 
motivatvon behind the bomb: 
"Cuba is (or where ever) a great 
country if it weren't for the people 
that are living there." 

the "housekeeping" sessions will 
be resumed later this month. 

Bromery, who asked for the 
sessions to be postponed, said the 
two sides were not ready to meet, 
as more information had to be 
gathered before the 

"housekeeping" sessions could 

About 1600 faculty voted to 
accept the Amherst and Boston 
affiliates of the Massachusetts 
Teacher's Association as their 
union representatives in February. 
While student participation in the 
sessions remains to be discussed, 
Bromery said he has written 
student leaders asking them to 
participate on an advisory council 
which would advise administrators 
on student concerns in the 
negotiation process. 

Student Government 
Association (SGA) President Jon 
A. Hite said a letter of response is 
being drawn up citing student 
concerns. He declined to comment 
the possibility of a similar action 
with the faculty union. 

Meanwhile, the student 
collective bargaining task force, an 
offshoot panel of the group which 
is working on a reorganization plan 
for student government, is 
beginning work on a position 
papers which will explain student 
concerns about relevant issues. 

Speaker of the Student Senate 
Brian DeLima, a member of both 
groups, said, "I don't think 
students will be totally for faculty or 
totally for the administration." 
Students will develop each issue 
"position by position," he said. 
The task force was established 

by a vote of the student senate a 
few weeks after the faculty voted to 
accept a union. 

DeLima said the task force was 
set up to educate students about 
faculty collective bargaining and its 
impact on students, and also to 
involve as many students as 
possible in the process of drawing 
up position papers. 

Central to the goal of broad base 
participation is the establishment of 
a student government based on a 
union model now being discussed 
among top student leaders, with 
individual departments and dor- 
mitories deciding issues such as 
office hours and academic 
calendars, he said. 

Office hours "which the ad- 
ministration might consider as a 
minor point" should be the topic of 
one position paper, he said. If the 
number of contact hours with 
students are not applied to in- 
dependent study and special 
programs, faculty will not have the 
incentive to work with those 
programs, DeLima added. 

DeLima said he wants students 
to be able to bring up their con- 
cerns during the faculty- 
administration negotiating 

"I'm not advocating observer 
status," he said. 

The first contract is the most 
important, DeLima said, students 
will be directly affected by 
everything that is negotiated except 
perhaps salary. 

"It would be foolish for both 
sides to ignore students," DeLima 
said, "I'm optomistic they'll allow 
us to participate."

Final RSO candidates 

Repre«entatives from 
Recognized Student 
Organization (RSO) groups will 
be able to meet with two of the 
seven finalists for RSO coor- 
dinator today. 

Mary Sue Hood of Long 
Island University will be 
meeting with interested 
students at 11:15 a.m. today in 
the Campus Center 805 to 809. 
Willie Hasson, RSO summer 
activities coordinator, will be in 
Campus Center 903 at 2:15 p.m. 

The coordinator will be 
responsible for student 
programs and budgets and will 
report to the newly-hired 
director of the Campus Center 

William Harris. 

Three of the seven finalists 
appeared on Monday and 
Tuesday in the Campus Center. 
On Monday Michael Pill, co- 
chair of the Campus Center 
Board of Governors appeared, 
and on Tuesday both James P. 
Riley, acting assistant coor- 
dinator of Student Activities 
and Armand H. "Bud" Demers 
met with the public.

Distribution today 
for campus budget 

Warren W. Gulko, budget director 


The $72.6 million allocated to 
U Mass- Amherst for fiscal year 78 
should .->e divided today among the 
roughly 80 campus* departments, 
according to Provost and Vice 
Chancellor of Academic Affairs 
Paul L. Puryear. 

Puryear Monday night said the 
scheduling of today's session 
would depend upon the length of 
another related conference among 
himself and other UMass ad- 

Warren W. Gulko, director of 
budget and institutional studies, 
last week said he believes the 
additional $4.5 million over last 
year's budget of $68 should allow 
UMass to fill "over 100 vacancies." 

Calling the fiscal 78 figure an 
1 "appropriation reaffirming the 
legislature's commitment to quality 
public higher education," Gulko 
said, "It is the first step to returning 
to normalcy, after the stringent 
fiscal crisis of the last three years." 

Puryear said although he could 
not speculate the number of 
positions to be filled until after 
today's session, he did say campus 
allocations would be "tight." 

At the UMass- Boston campus 
Chancellor Carlo L. Golino said the 
$19.53 million earmarked for his 
campus would allow a "modest 

Golino said some of the newer 
programs, like professional studies, 
will develop more under this year's 
budget while the administration will 
be able to "hold in place" the 
traditional liberal arts curricula. 

He added two other "pressing 
areas", student services and fine 
arts, would also receive more at- 
tention in 1978. 

Golino said he had requested 
$19.7 million for the campus, but 
noted although it appears Boston 
almost received the total allocation, 
out of the $19.53 allocated must 
come the funds for the cost of 
living raises granted to campus 
employees late in the spring. 

Roger J. Bulger, chancellor at the 
UMass- Worcester medical center, 
said in a telephone interview 
Monday night the allocation for the 
Worcester campus is "very good." 

Bulger pointed out the newly- 
created $3.5 million trust fund for 
the campus hospital will allow 
growth with "much less of a drain 
on the University in terms of the 
overall dollar." 

The hospital, Bulger explained, 
would receive a small subsidy 
annually, while using the money 
collected from patient services to 
increase the number of beds. In 
three years, Bulger said, the 
hospital should have 400 available 
beds, the orginal projection when 
the hospital opened in 1975. By the 
end of fiscal 78 90 more beds will 
be added to the present 85, said 

If the hospital were forced to 
continue expansion by complete 
funding, said Bulger, "no one 
would stand it on the higher 
education budget." 

The request for the fiscal 78 
hospital budget had been $18.8 
million, according to Bulger. 

The $10.2 million allocated for 
the medical school, said Bulger, 
should help facilitate a "cycle of 
expansion" allowing the school to 
"bring on some new faculty." 

"Across the board," Bulger said, 
"I'm really pleased." 

UMass President Robert C. 
Wood stated in a press release the 
1978 appropriation will allow the 
University to "return to normalcy 
after three years of fiscal con- 
straints that have deeply affected 
all of our operations." 

With the $109.1 million of 
"direct" appropriations, and 
"approximately $13 million in 
additional revenue provided 
through the University hospital in 
Worcester," Wood said this year's 
budget totals $122.2 million. Last 
year, Wood noted, the University 
received $108 million. 

Wood cited the hospital trust 
fund as one of the key features of 
the budget. He said the hospital's 
fiscal 78 revenue, which will be 
returned to the hospital for ex- 
pansion purposes, should reach $13 

Funds provided for the $850 
annual salary rate increase for

"I get scared, but it's different, 
because there's a white face be- 
tween me and the audience.. .but 
the fear makes me better. ..the only 
difference between now and grades

was always sort of crazy. ..mother: 
"Yes, my son was always crazy," 
said mime Pat Burke, discussing 
stagefright, and briefly departing 
from his visual medium to orally 
mimic his mother. 

Burke, 24, originally from Romeo, 
Michigan, a Detroit suburb, now 
lives in and is in love with Eugene, 
Oregon. The tools of his trade are 
also his transportation vehicle, i.e., 
he hitchhiked from Oregon to 
Amherst, via the Mariposa Folk 
Festival. In Toronto, where he did a 
skit with David Bromberg providing 
the background music. 

Hitching at the toll booths on I-90 
in Albany, N.Y., he was trying to 
get a ride by doing mime for the 
passing cars, and was arrested for 
hitchhiking. He was fined $5.00 
after being told "get into the car, 
srhartass" by a New York State 
policeman who wasn't amused. In 
Hartford, he had the stage for 15 
minutes at "Good Old Times," a 
bar. He passed the hat afterwards 
and earned $13; he was also offered 
a full time job as an entertainer. 

Previous experience includes 
working at a playground, which he 
still enjoys doing, but now as a 
mime: "Kids are the best audience, 
so aware, and they laugh and laugh 
and laugh. He said that whenever 
he calls a day care center or school 
to offer to put on a show, the 
administrators are overjoyed. 

More recently, he belonged to a 
clown club, and even made a guest 
appearance at the Shrine Circus 
when it was in Eugene. However, 
he became disillusioned with 
clowning, due to its "sexist, racists 
classist status," e.g., he considers 
Emmel Kelley's bum act classist. 
Also, he said that a clown has less 
flexibility than a mime, as a clown 

"tells his story with his clothes." 
Moreover, he said a clown act 
involves black comedy (e.g. - The 
Three Stooges by hitting people or 
falling down. 

When asked if he was a 
professional, he said, "Sometimes, 
when I pass the hat." He took one 
mime course in college, and has 
spent the rest of his pantomime 
education learning by doing, 
"learning illusions." 

His present goal is to eventually 
go to San Francisco and join the 
San Francisco Mime Troupe. But 
currently, he is, as he put it, "a 
traveling minstrel", laying over in 
Amherst at a friend's house, and is 
enroute to Ontario, after he hits the 
Boston Common and Harvard 
Square. In spi.e of a faster paced' 
lifestyle than Oregon, he likes 
Massachusetts even though "it's 
not quite on the ball like Oregon."

♦ •» V* ROLLERCOASTER, starring 
George Segal. Richard Widmark and 
Timothy Bottoms. Now playing at Showcase 

Amusement parks are an American in- 
stitution, as thev dot our nation's highways 
ar><2 byways Every large city has a sprawling 
million dollar complex nearby to entertain 
and fleece the enthralled masses It is a 
cunous sociological process to watch people 
migrate not unlike lemmings, to these 
mechanical wonders for a night of thrills and 
laughter only to return with a lighter wallet 
and heads 

Some are satiated by the food; these 
select few find redeeming value in the 
greasy discolored and expensive tidbits that 
are offered Some, like myself, take refuge in 
devices that remain on. or near, the ground. 
Mv bumper car and I form a rather imposing 
mass as together we careen and spin around 
an arena where one can, at worst, suffer 
whiplash. However, there are a sizeable 
number of incogitant perverts, who take 
delight in defying death, nature, and all 
natural inclinations by riding on a roller - 

l was not sure whether I would ever go on 
a roiiercoaster again, but after seeing the 
new film Roiiercoaster, I think I can say with 
little doubt, that never again will I be caught 
in its plummeting grip. 

Roiiercoaster is a mildly diverting film 
whic*i concerns a safety inspector, played 
nicely by George Segal, who chases a young 
man who plants bombs on roiiercoaster rides 
around the country. The young man, whose 
names we never learn, leaves a trail around 
1 he U.S. of destruction and death, in order to 
extort $1 million from the heads of 
amusement parks. The FBI are called in, and 
made to look exceedingly foolish, as they run 
around, under the sloppy direction of hard, 
bitter and egotistical Richard Widmark. 

The plot, as one can see, is fairly simple; it 
is not far fetched or unbelievable. It is the 
newest of the disaster films, and like the first 
few of that genre that were tolerable, the film 
presents an activity that is considered 
commonplace and demonstrates its 
vulnerability. However, here is a unique 
»wist; rollercoasters are built to scare people. 
They maintain a mystique by causing fear — 
fear that they will derail on any particularly 
sharp corner. However, we all know (or 
hope) that they won't; physicists, engineers 
and safety inspectors have all checked and 
rechecked to insure our safety. But, this film 
demonstrates that it is not hard to get your 
death wish. 

While the basic premise in the plot may be 
passable, it is filled with foibles. The 
characters are underdeveloped to the point 
of being criminal. We never find out why the 
bomber is engaged ; n his exploits, or how he 
got the requisite knowledge of engineering, 
electronics and explosives. Meanwhile, Segal 
trys hard to save the film, cast as a very 
shallow and totally predictable shlump. 

Many films contain a sub-plot, which is 
threaded amidst the film to divert attention 

for fun 

Exciting music is still being made. Above: ABBA; 
below: Blondie and Iggy Pop. 

from the main attraction and add depth to 
the characters. Here, the entire sub-plot is 
Segal's attempt to stop smoking. Not only is 
this much too thin, it is not even handled 

This film attempts to develop the 
characters through an old trick; when one 
person is pursuing another, the hunter 
begins to anticipate the moves and actions of 
the prey. In doing so, one develops a sense 
of admiration and twisted friendship for the 
other. The epitome of this is found in the 
Holmes-Moriarty relationship. However, this 
film bungles in its attempt to use this 
technique. It plunges head on, however, with 
Segal accused of having admiration for the 
extortionist after one bombing scene where 
no clues were left. On top of that, a deep 
psychological relationship develops after one 
two-minute phone call. A bit hoaky, mind 

Despite the large number of flaws, the film 
is entertaining. It makes it by being a total, 
all-out assault on your senses: with the 
cameras attached to the front of the 
roiiercoaster, you get a front row seat on 
some of the scariest rides in America, and all 
is accompanied with Sensuround, which 
literally shakes your chair and provides 
realistically deafening sounds. Most people 
were twisting and turning in their seats as the 
cars went whizzing around corners and 
down steep inclines. 

All in all, the film is entertaining, and it 
makes no claim otherwise; it is there to 
capture your senses, not provide any moral 
or meaning. And, for those brave hearted 
few, next time you take a ride on the 
roiiercoaster at an amusement park, watch 
the rails in front of the car. You can never 


A funny thing 


the\)inyl Junkie 


This is intended as a companion 
piece to my co-columnist's sum-up 
of the year in music so far, which 
appeared here last week. As with 
that writer, you'll find that most of 
the music I push in these pages is 
not very well-known. This is not 
due to snobbery. I like rock'n'roll; 
you know, "It's got a good beat 
and you can dance to it." And, 
unfortunately, few people get to 
hear much of it anymore. 

Top 30 radio plays as littib 
rock'n'roll as it can nowadays, 
thinking it irritating to the older 
listeners their sponsors are after. 
Why assinine disc jockeys, con- 
stant contests and hype, and 
obnoxious novelties like "Un- 
dercover Angel" aren't considered 
irritating is beyond me. Only ABBA 
and occasional freak hits make it 
worth tuning in at all. Album 
stations, meanwhile, still subscribe 
to idiotic late 60s standards of 
musical complexity, lyrical 
profundity and nippy image. The 
only real rock'n'roll played on either 
format is by artists they have been 

forced to play due to overwhelming 
live popularity. And the concert 
scene is dominated by groups that 
either have outlived their usefulness 
(the 60's leftovers) or were never 
that useful in the first place (the 
boogie bands). Discos started as a 
good influence, bringing back 
dancing, but find me some "soul" 
in the monotonous funk rehashes 
and elevator-muzak-with-cymbal 
they have chosen to deal in ex- 
clusively now. The freshest music 
these days is coming out of small 
live clubs, and that, sadly, is why 
too few people have heard those 
artists to make a dent in the charts. 

Just compare the Beatles' Live 
At The Hollywood Bowl with its 
competition: the Eagles, Peter 
Frampton, Steve Miller. It can't be 
denied that the Beatles were in- 
finitely more fun. It's not that I've 
grown old and can't relate to some 
new far-out "noise." Quite the 
contrary: what is being pushed 
today is middle-of-the-road music 
that is a lot closer to pre-rock 

But there is still plenty of exciting 

music being made. If you like hard 
rock, there are loads of recent good 
records, by artists such as the 
Ramones, the Sex Pistols, the 
Dictators, the Saints, Reddy Teddy, 
Willie Loco Alexander, the Clash, 
Johnny Thunder's Heartbreakers, 
Piper, and Eddie and the Hot Rods. 
Prefer pop? Eric Carmen, ABBA, 
the Flamin' Groovies, Dwight 
Twilley, Blondi, the Kinks, the 
Rubinoos, Greg Kihn, Tom Petty's 
Heartbreakers, Henry Gross, and 
Pezband are recommended. And if 
more experimental music is your 
thing, try Iggy Pop, Pere Ubu, 
Television, Patti Smith, David 
Bowie, Bryan Ferry, John Cale, or 
the Talking Heads. There is 60's 
style R & B (Mink DeVille, Graham 
Parker and Southside Johnny) and 
even 50's rockabilly (Dave Ed 
munds, Robert Gordon, and, 
arguably, Jonathan Richman). 

What you are being force-fed is a 
sorry excuse for rock'n'roll. But you 
don't have to buy it. Take a chance 
on any of the above-named artists, 
and see how good music can still 
make you feel. 


When A Funny Thing Happened 
On The Way To The Forum first 
opened in Broadway in 1962 it was 
as well received as it was last week 
at the opening of the Mount 
Holyoke College Summer Theatre's 
seventh season. The stage is 
housed under a spacious red and 
white tent that provides ample 
seating and no one view is ob- 
structed, as it has adopted the style 
of theatre-in-the round. 

A Funny Thing... is an excellent 
choice to lead off what looks like an 
exciting season. It is like a ritual 
satyr play to spark to life the 
summer. It is set in Rome, 200 B.C., 
and is a ribald, slapstick farce about 
conniving slaves, braggard soldiers, 
scheming merchants, nobles, 
citizens and plebians. 

The central character is 
Pseudolus, slave to the young and 
lovesick Hero. He is promised his 
freedom if he can procure Philia, 
the dumb-blonde courtesan who 
has already been contracted out to 
General Miles Gloriosus, a soldier of 
fortune and arrange a union bet- 
ween she and his master. 

The slave was played by Jack 
Neary. The most refreshing aspect 
of his performance was that he was 
creating the role of Pseudolus and 
not recreating the role of Zero 
Mostel, who played that part both 
on Boradway and in the equally- 
successful film version. We are told 
in the beginning by the slave, who 
is also a sort of emcee to the show, 
that we are to enjoy a comedy and 
not to take anything too seriously. 
It is in this vain that the program 
continues. We are constantly aware 
that the program continues. We are 
constantly aware that this is all a 
farce and Neary's endeavors to 
present a desperate character who 
will stop at nothing to procure his 
freedom is somewhat un- 
convincing; but funny. Yes, we 
have no choice but to laugh at his 

The part of Hero is well cast. 
Jack Fahey manages to keep up the 
most painful expressions of his 
enchantment with the courtesan. 

How he does it for the play's two 
hour duration is indeed remarkable. 
He would appear to be wearing a 
mask as did the actors at the time in 
which this play is set. 

Matter of factly, the entire cast is 
outstanding in their diversity of 
characterizations. The masks 
change quickly with the moods, 
from intense anger to pride, from 
pain to guilt. Mitzi MacLachlan is 
the object of young Hero's desires, 

Along with the wide-brimmed 
fedora and bull whip, Kilbourne has 
added a sort of 42nd Street turn-of- 
the-millenium accent. 

Narcissus himself is protrayed in 
the role of Miles Gloriosus by Tom 
McCabe. Though rarely seen on 
stage alone he appears to be too 
big for the confines of the tent. He 
appears within minutes as a 
braggard soldier, destroyer of the 
weak, an acrophobiac, and a 

Pseudolus, played by Jack Neary, tries to explain 
his way out of one of the many predicaments in which 
he finds himself in the hit comedy production of A 
Funny Thing Happened On The Way To the Forum, 
currently playing at the Mount Holyoke College 
Summer Theatre. 

Philia. Sweet and charming, a 
permanent smile has been chiseled 
across her delicate features as a 
result of years of training on the 
island of Crete; Pseudolus, at- 
tempting to ward off the Roman 
warrior attributes the smile to a 
plague that has swept Crete. 

Phil Kilbourne has added another 
dimension to the character of 
Lycus, the local pimp who has 
contracted out Philia to the soldier. 

broken hearted lover and is at all 
times genuinely humerous and 
remains, somehow, a likable 
character in his convincing parody 
of himself. 

Peter Massey arfd Nancy Perkins 
play Hero's parents, who are at the 
same time responsible for their 
son's dilemma and innocent 
bystanders to the underhanded 

The Proteans, an all-purpose 

chorus of three, were played by 
Susan Danels, Neil Musante and 
Deborah Levy. In a series of run-on 
spots as Roman troopers, citizens 
and eunuchs they were often the 
center of many laughs. 

Most notable among the cast 
was Jeffery Deutsch, who played 
the head slave in Hero's estate 
Hysterium. And indeed he was 
hysterical as well as hilarious 
Despite the action of the play he is 
in himself the most humerous of 
i he characters and the script does 
provide him with enough material 
to steal the show. 

The great chase scene and the 
perfect rapport between the band 
and the performers tells us 
something about the exquisite 
direction of this musical on the part 
of Jim Cavanaugh and Suzanne 
Lufkin. The props were simple but 
effective. A makeshift deux ex 
machina would send down 
messages from the gods such as 
telling the audience that this was a 
"comedia" and provide incidental 
materials such as a door knocker or 
a key. 

The occasional appearance of 
the weary Erronius, who has been 
sent by Pseudolus in the guise of a 
soothsayer, to run seven times 
round the seven hills of Rome 
always provided an unexpected 
laugh. Frederick Hampson por- 
trayed the befuddled old man. The 
five courtesans also provided a 
catalyst for laughs mainly when 
appearing opposite the wide-eye 

This week the Mount Holyoke 
College Summer Theatre is 
presenting another comedy. King 
Of Hearts, not to be confused with 
the film of the same name. A young 
secretary's well-organized life is 
suddenly interrupted by a host of 
amusing obstacles. A selection of 
the/4 Funny Thing... cast will be on 
hand for the laughs. 

All performances this summer 
run Tuesday through Saturday. 
Curtain is at 8:30 p.m., but seats are 
scarce so a call to the box office at 
538-2406 for reservations and more 
details is advised. 

fT)d£S Three on a match 


In the beginning there was Time, 
which begat People, which was 
successful and begat several 
imitators, of which only Celebrity 
and Us remain. 

Upon first look at these three 
entrants in this still-unnamed genre 
there appears to be little difference 
between them. But on closer ob- 
servation - well, there's still little 

When Us joined the race in April 
of this year there was promise — it 
was published by that stoic arbiter 

of the news, The New York Tin ies, 
and the initial hope was that Us 
would perhaps take a slightly more 
in-depth and slightly less glossy 
look at the world of popular culture. 
But no such luck, as it is no bitter 
and in most ways no different rom 
its older two sisters. 

The selling point behind all three 
is a simple one: produce an inex- 
pensive pulp magazine v/hich 
caters to that (huge) segment of 
the population which cares about 
the famous, the current ard the 
interesting. They also go about 
meeting this goal simply ard with 
little issue-to-issue variation Short 
articles, with lots of photos, written 
in a punchy style abou items 
current, popular, interesthg and 
eclectic enough to draw as wide an 
audience as possible wi'h each 
issue (a trick first mastered by the 
late Ed Sullivan). 

The key to success in general is 
to remain with the popular and the 
eclectic while avoiding the con- 
troversial. The key to success in any 
particular issue lies with the current 
fame and popularity of the celebrity 
featured on the cover. As a general 
rule, if he- she is still "in," the 
issue will sell; if he— she is already 
"out" or "on the way out," it will 
not. This is why Farrah Fawcett is 
all over the covers of these mags, 

and when she isn't Kate Jackson or 
Jaclyn Smith is. 

A column in the June 27, 1977 
issue of Advertising Age magazine 
detailed People's best and worst 
selling issues by the celebrity 
featured on the cover. On the plus 
side, in order were Gregg and Cher 
Allman (9-27-76), Barbra Streisand 
and Kris Kristofferson (1-10-77), 
Elizabeth Taylor and John Warner 
(2-14-77), Sally Pield (4-25-77) and 
Charlie's Angels (9-6-76). 

On the other hand, big losers 
were Nancy Reagan (2-23-76), 

Michael Caine (3-1-76), Sophia 
Loren (2-2-76), Mary Tyler Moore 
(2-9-76) and Marissa Berenson (3-8- 
76). The worst seller of this year so 
far has been the issue of March 14, 
with Julie Andrews on the cover. 
The most glaring difference 
between these three periodicals is 
their respective regularity: only 
People keeps up a weekly pace, 
while Us appears bi-weekly and 
Celebrity only once a month. 

Being a monthly pop culture 
magazine in an era where popular 
tastes change so rapidly that 
something "in" one day may quite 
literally be "out" the next, is a 
distinct disadvantage for Celebrity. 
To counteract this problem, the 
editors often go with the sure thing, 
that person or trend which they 
know will still be popular by the 
time the issue comes off the stand. 
Occasionally they will blow one, 
such as the decision to run Cher as 
the cover story of their July '77 
issue; she has been "out" for 
months now. 

Other differences are a bit more 
subtle. Celebrity had the audacity 
to emply the exact same name plate 
and body- type styles as People had 
selected for use long before it did. 
Us, on the other hand, favors a serif 
type face, and as a result is much 
more difficult to read. Where 

People runs an extensive review 
section. Celebrity runs a long 
gossip column and Us employs a 
section of whose birthdays are 

The general layout of the three is 
nearly identical and the writing is 
such that a story written for one 
could easily be run in either of the 
other two with few alterations. 

In all, the differences between 
the three are, at most, quite 
minimal. It all comes down to 
whether or not you enjoy endulging 
in this type of pulp. If so, you might 
as well read all three. If not, you 
don't need me to tel' you to stay

A musical Fourth 

Jazz in Lenox . . . 


It was not only a pleasure to be at 
the Music Inn in Lenox last 
Monday, it was one of the most 
enjoyable ways to spend a 4th of 
July afternoon: good day, good 
people, great music. 

The crowd started arriving at 1 
p.m. with their picnic baskets and 
blankets. There were almost 4000 
people gathered there for a day of 

her set she walked off to a standing 
ovation, as did everyone else that 

While the stage was being set for 
the John Klemmer group, one was 
given a chance to absorb what was 
just heard. But the time it had sunk 
in, Klemmer was on, and I do mean 

This group consisted of Bill King, 
former musical director for the 
Pointer Sisters, on piano ?nd 
synthesizer; Disco Dave Saunders, 
L.A. recording arist, on bass; Ted 
Saunders, who has been with 
Klemmer one-and-a-half years, on 
electric piano; Hal Gordon, formerly 

If you weren't at 
this 4th of July 
musical afternoon, 

you missed five 
solid hours of 
real music. 

Saving the best for last, following 
Klemmer's band was "The 
Quintet": Herbie Hancock, piano; 
Freddier Hubbard, trumpet; Wayne 
Shorter, tenor and soprano saxes; 
Ron Carter, bass; and Tony 
Williams, drums. 

What can possibly be said about 
these five men that has not already? 
— either individually or collectively, 
especially when they play great 

jazz, and a day of jazz is exactly 
what they got. 

Marlena Shaw opened the show 
with such a burst of energy that 
those who didn't know her before 
the show certainly did when she 
finished. When she sang "Free 
Love" the crowd was ready. As she 
did the monologue to "Go Away 
Little Boy", the people were talking 
back to her and when she ended 

with Woody Herman, on per- 
cussion; Carl Burnett, formerly with 
Freddie Hubbard and Kenny 
Burrell, on drums; and the leader of 
the band, John Klemmer, on tenor 

Klemmer's band performed John 
Coltrane's "Mr. PC", several 
originals, including "Quiet Af- 
ternoon", which reminded me of 
Cannonball Adderly's "Mercy 
Mercy", and oldies like "Sum- 

"Outstanding" is one of the 
many adjectives I could use to 
describe this group. Once again, 
the crowd rose to its feet after the 
set, demanding more. 

tunes like "Nefertiti", "Maiden 
Voyage", Ron Carter'a "81" and 
Freddie Hubbard's "One Of A 

If you weren't at this 4th of July 
musical afternoon, you missed five 
solid hours of real music. No 
electronics, no gadgets, just real

. . . Pops in Boston 


July 4th in Boston was a hot, humid day, but there 
was no deterrent to the hundreds of thousands of 
people who flocked to the Hatch Shell and the 
surrounding area. For it was Independence Day; the 
day when the city presents an evening of fireworks 
and music with Arthur Fiedler. 

A quarter of a million people crowded the banks of 
the Charles River and the surrounding streets to catch 
a glimpse of Arthur Fiedler and the Boston Pops. At 
noon, around 6,000 people had arrived to stake their 
claim for land and to begin the partying. By late af- 
ternoon it was nearly impossible to get close enough 
to see any of the show, so most people seemed 
satisfied just to listen to the concert on nearby radios. 
For those who weren't fortunate enough to see the 
major attraction, there were sideline events to en- 
tertain them. Canoes gliding down the Charles 
provided a lyrical and relaxing scene for the crowds; a 
soothing contrast to the thick air and crammed 
conditions on the Esplanade. 

While most were content to sit back and observe 
the festivities, at least one brave soul decided to 
become a part of the action. He proceeded to dive 
into the river, and at the urging of the cheering crowd 
he swam across the mucky water three times. 

The crowd was composed mainly of high school 
and college-aged people who looked at the occasion 
as a chance to party. The appeal of the event is un- 
doubtedly based in the fact that it happens but once a 

year. It is a mass culture event: free, outdoors, end 
featuring light music and the counterpoint of ex- 
ploding fireworks. It is an audio-visual attraction that 
is unique, and boasts a wide appeal. Moreover, it is a 

And tradition is at the heart of the matter when 
you're discussing the Fourth of July. It's one of those 
vast, nebulous concepts where tradition embodies 
habit, familiarity, and the sense of community. There 
is a feeling of exhilaration in being a part of the crowd. 
At the Charles River on July 4, this spirit peaks in the 
final moments as all attention is drawn to the 
fireworks display. As the symphony progresses, 
energy rises in anticipation of the explosive finale of 
"The 1812 Overture," which marks the beginning of 
the fireworks show. 

All the frustrations and discomforts of the muggy 
day were forgotten as darkness enveloped the area 
and the fireworks commenced. Delighted faces filled 
the Esplanade, gazes set on the colorful play ot lights 
against the sky. Veterans of the event jubilantly 
wandered around, describing this year's escapades 
and comparing them to those of years past to any 
spectators patient enough to listen. These people, 
who return annually to the Hatch Shell, are centra! to 
the spirit of the goings-on. 

Unlike most things these days, the celebration has 
not lost any of its appeal or charm. The music, the 
atmosphere, the crowd make July 4 on the Esplanade 
3 tradition for Boston, a party for its people.

Back to baseball 



Quiz question: What do the 
following baseball players have in 
common - Nat S ho waiter, 
Thurmon Munson, Carlton Fisk, 
Ron Carney, and Mike Flanagan? 
Answer at end of article. 

Less than a week from now, the 
annual all-star game between the 
American and National Leagues will 
be played in Yankee Stadium. 

But of all the major sports, 
football's all-star match, the Pro 
Bowl, is probably the most exciting. 
Baseball's version is second rate in 
comparison. Basketball's all-star 
contest would probably rank third, 
if only because the first three 
quarters are all offense until the 
fourth quarter, when the teams 
decide to play defense to win. 

Hockey rates last. It's not the 
fault of the sport, just that you can't 
expect different style hockey 
players to adjust to the swifter style 
of teams such as the Canadians, for 
example. Terry O'Reilly used to 
have a hard time just trying to keep 
up with his fellow Bruins. 

But back to baseball. 

Something has to be done about 
the National League's dominance 
of the all-star games. It seems like a 
guaranteed NL win every year. 

American League fans should 
keep in mind the following tips 
when punching out their ballots at 
the park: 

1) Pick the best AL players 
possible, whether you like them or 

2) Pick mediocre NL players, 
maybe even write in unknown 
names. But don't pick the worst NL 
players; it would look too 



The New England Patriots up- 
coming schedule has to be the 
easiest one in some time for them. 
Outside of twin games against the 
Dolphins and Colts, the rest is a 

piece of cake, like Cleveland, Seat- 
tle, San Diego. . . Barring a Grogan 
injury, they should win their division 
with two or possibly three losses. 
Which means two straight playoff 
trips. (Will they get ripped off 
again?... only if they play the 

I finally made it to Fenway Park a 
couple of weekends ago when the 
Yankees came to town. It was the 
first time in over a year. For those of 
you who have been as tardy in 
attendance as I, the scoreboard is 
fantastic! The instant replays are 
great. I'm in love with that thing; I 
may even become a loyal Red Sox 
fan again. 

Fear not Sox fans — the team 
will have their losing streaks, and 
their winning streaks. But come 
October, the Yankees will be 
watching the playoffs on their color 

Answer to quiz: All five played 
in the Cape Cod baseball league 
before making it to the majors. 

Munson played the year before 
Fisk. Flanagan, the former UMass 
pitcher, is now with the Orioles. In 
fact, he beat the Sox the last time 

Showalter was just drafted by 
the Yankees and is playing left field 
for their farm team down in Florida. 
Showalter broke Munson's record 
for hits last season while playing for 
the Hyannis Mets; he also had the 
distinction of never having struck 
out the whole season — over 40 

Carney was drafted by his 
college's state team, the Texas 
Rangers. He played with Hyannis 
last season.

Solidarity comm. 
sponsors program 

The Amherst-Northampton 
chapter of the Native American 
Solidarity Committee is sponsoring 
a presentation on the 1977 Indian 
Treaty Conference Friday at 7:30 
p.m. at the Unitarian Church in 

Over 1,000 Native Americans 
attended the third international 
conference, held at the Standing 
Rock Territory in South Dakota in 

According to organizers, the 
conference was one more step 
toward the Indian goal of self- 
determination and national 
sovereignity within U.S. bo r ders. 
Those attending the conference 
discussed the high rates of forced 
sterilization of Indian women as a 
form of genocide and the high rate 

at which corporations are attempt- 
ing to gain control over natural 
resources of Indian-held land. 

The Northampton presentation 
will feature a representative of the 
committee who attended the South 
Dakota conference and *a 
spokesperson from the In- 
ternational Indian Treaty Council at 
the United Nations. A video-tape of 
the 1976 conference will be shown.

Unity Ensemble concert 
opens N'hampton series 

JULY 13, 1977 

Unity Ensemble from Left: Sulaiman Hakim-reeds; Semenya AAcCord- 
vocals; Art Mathews-electric piano; Avery Sharpe-bass; Kevin Ross-bass; 
Chris Henderson-drums, balafons, and percussion. 


Unity Ensemble, featuring 
Sulaiman Hakim and Chris Hen- 
derson, opened the Main Street 
Center's summer series of Black 
music ("Jazz"), July 8 and 9 in 
Northampton. Over 200 people 
attended each performance. 

The band — Sulaiman Hakim on 
soprano and alto saxophone, Art 
Matthews on keyboards, Kevin 
Ross and Avery Sharpe on acoustic 
bass, Chris Henderson on drums, 
balafons and percussion and 
Semenya McCord, vocalist — 
created textures and purity in 
sound that are contemporary black 
classical music. 

Semenya McCord, who arranged 
the title cut on Archie Shepp's 
There's a Trumpet in My Soul, sang

Sulaiman Hakim on 

"I Know About The Life", a tribute 
to Billie Holiday written by Aishah 
Rahman: "I know about the 
life— when death surrounds you — 
and when the blues hound you — 
yes, I know about the life- " This 
composition is on Shepp's album, 
Sea of Faces. Among other songs, 
she sang "Love Dreams" and 
"Ebony Song" by keyboardist Art 
Matthews. In a complex com- 
position, superbly executed, 
McCord and Hakim dialogued, both 
scatting and echoing. Later the 
saxophone engaged the traps in an 
exchange of scatting. McCord sang 
with all the passion that the content 
of the music prescribed and that 
the musicians performing with her 

In an outstanding arrangement 
by Sulaiman Hakim and Art Mat- 
thews, untitled at present, the 
saxophone sensitively arose from a 
percussive rush. Scaling the run- 
away momentum, achieved by a 
synergistic cascade, pounding at its 
peak, Hakim's instrumentation 
would deaccelerate the movement 
to an almost-restful tempo. 
Suddenly the percussion would 
detonate into another run. This 
repeated. The audience rode this 
pace and welcomed the cynosure 
coming from reeds and the 
culminating display of memorable 

Chris Henderson guided listeners 
through a repertoire of drumming 
citing the historical fusion of black 
music already so "American" and 
familiar. He made distinction be- 
tween the style of street parade

Chris Henderson plays 

drumming common with school 
bands and heard during holidays 
with its African and Afro-American 
character, and the drumming of 
Europe. He spoke acknowledging 
this lineage of influence on his 
audience and on his craft — for 
him, a lineage from Africa to South 
Philly and its street drumming. 

During Henderson's solos he 
would demand from the confined 
chambers within his drums, from 
the tempered metals in gong and 
cymbals, from the porous cells of 
woods and from the vibrancy and 
reflective nature of taunt skins a 
range of expression, from subtle to 
militant. Following intermission, 
Henderson presented a homage to 
the African mode, so authentic and 
so comprehensible in its con- 
temporaneity. Without dancers, 
without village people answering in 
chorus, Henderson — with kazoos, 
a wristlet of bells and balafons, in- 
struments reliant upon the 
resonance from gourds and the 
closeness of earth — produced full 
imagery of the "pulse of his 
music", African drumming. 

Sulaiman Hakim followed with a 
blues solo by W.C. Handy. My pen 
skated and recorded: An alto sax 
crying — A solo sorrow in blues— 
From Africa to a voice seething 
forlorn — From Africa to a non- 
turning-back shore— From Africa to 
a pain seeringly sore— From Africa 
to a voice knowing there is more— 
From Africa to a blues slow burning 
but tenderly sure— From Africa to a 
voice pitched to set free— From 
Africa to the blues home true— To 
make home blues— To be true— For 
blues— To be— Free- 
Each selection presented by 
Unity Ensemble projected strong 
incisiveness that relied upon the 
formation of geometric crystal 
sounds, flurries from whispering 
cymbals, crescendos from drums 
riding over the forceful undertow of 
acoustic bass. Art Matthews added 
to the percussionary quality of 
many sections, but he also would 
bring to the fore prisms of melody. 
Songs spilling tenderness; songs 
eased from reeds sliding like brass 
light through dusk darkness, both 
voices bestowing smooth slices of 
sound, articulative appeals in sweet 
drawn-out phrasing; the constancy 
of a vibrant and variant bass; the 
expressive and commanding 


Bugs invade campus/ 

Over 1500 shutterbugs attended 
last weekend's convention of the 
New England Camera Club Council, 
held on the UMass-Amherst 

Arriving mid-day Friday, and 
causing a state of mass confusion 
on the Campus Center concourse 
as they linked up for registration, 
the photographers had a variety of 
events set up for their weekend. 
Included were slide and print 
judging contests, a display of 
historic photographic paraphenalia, 
seminars on such various esoteric 
aspects of photography as 
rephotography and streak 
photography, and more. 

The highlight of the conclave 
was Friday night's beauty pageant. 
Twenty camera clubs each 
sponsored one representative to 
the contest; as in real life, con- 
testants were featured in both swim 
suits and evening gowns, and a 
panel of esteemed judges voted on 
eight finalists, and finally the three 
top entrants. Winner Jill Bodell is 
pictured at right.

drums; the sparkle from prismic 
melody, the sheen from a very non- 
electronic keyboard — together, 
very easily brought the audience to 
their feet for a standing ovation. 

Floyd Andrus, owner of the Main 
Street Center who attended the 
Saturday concert, contrasted these 
two performances with "booze and 
boogie concerts." He and a 
mayoral candidate from North- 
ampton praised the success of the 
concert. Andrus said this was due 
to "professional musicians," an ap- 
preciative audience and the 
sponsorship by Loft Jazz North. 
The performance is "an outstand- 
ing example of what can be offered 
in downtown Northampton." An- 
drus noted that these were "pilot 
program" performances and ex- 
pressed hope that quality en- 
tertainment could be offered at the 
Main Street Center on subsequent 
Thursday and weekend nights. 

This Friday and Saturday 
evenings, for instance, Michael 
Gregory Jackson, a soloist 
proficient with the guitar, flute and 
percussion instruments as well as 
his voice, will be featured in the 
series. The concert is scheduled to 
begin at 8 p.m. each night, and a $2 
contribution is requested. The 
center is located at 150 Main St.,

An interview with Robert Wood 

JULY 20, 1977 


Wood looks back on term 


BOSTON - For seven years 
UMass President Robert C. Wood 
has managed the largest public 
school in the Commonwealth. 

And when he announced a few 
weeks ago he was vacating the 
position, mixed reactions were 
heard from political and educational 
leaders throughout the state, who 
Wood has known in his years as 

In an exclusive hour-and-a-half 
interview, Wood last week 
discussed some of the issues and 
people that have caused him to 
become the recognized leader in 
Massachusetts public higher 


More TA's # 
less profs? 


While most of the extra money 
UMass is receiving in its new 
budget seems to be disappearing in 
cost of living pay increases, 
graduate students could find many 
more teaching associate positions 
open to them in the fall as a result 
of the $72.5 million budget for the 
Amherst campus. 

A UMass administration 
spokesperson last week said since it 
is too late to recruit faculty for the 
academic area this fall, graduate 
students will be hired with the 
additional funds. 

The president of the Graduate 
Student Senate Sally Rees 
Monday said it is her understanding 
that some of the teaching associate 
positions vacated in the last three 
years during the University's fiscal 
crisis will be filled this fall. 

According to the annual 
Graduate School Fact Book, 436 
graduate students held teaching 
associate jobs in the fall of 1974. In 
the fall of 1976, only 93 graduate 
students worked as teaching 

Charles F. Hutchinson, associate 
dean of the Graduate School, 
Monday night said it is too early to 
speculate how many graduate 
students will be hired this fall. 

The different departments on 
campus may use their money in 
"various different ways," said 

Figures in the three editions of 
Graduate School Fact Book show 
that while the number of graduate 
students working as teaching 
associates decreased by 343 from 
the fall of 1974 through the fall of 
1976, the number of graduate 
students hired as teaching 
assistants during the same period 
increased from 816 to 1009. 

The difference between teaching 
assistants and teaching associates, 
in financial terms, is that assistants 
are paid under the temporary 
account, while associates are on 
the permanent payroll account, the 
same payroll account as most 

An administration spokesperson 
said last week that although the 
difference between this year's and 
last year's budget appears to be 
$4.4 million, it is actually only $1.5 
million. He explained that the 
Alliance, a labor union representing 
many state employees, bargained 
for cost of living raises, causing the 


"I think that my greatest disappointment 
would be that the Amherst campus 
didn't realize or accept the fact that the 
seventies were not the sixties, 
that the bloom was off the rose." 


The Amherst campus, Wood 
said, has been slow to realize they 
are no longer the only consideration 
of the trustees or of the president's 

"For Amherst, the last seven 
years have been a hard time, 
particularly for the faculty in 
readjusting to the fact they were no 
longer the single campus and they 
were no longer the center of at- 
tention," he said. 

"Because it is a residential 
campus, because it's com- 
munication focuses far more 
toward Connecticut and the New 
York metropolitan area, a sense of 
isolation and self-identity skews its 
perception of what's going on," he 

Wood said there was a "sense of 
loss" when first the president's 
office moved to Boston and then 
when the trustees decided to locate 
the medical school in Worcester. 

"I think that my greatest 
disappointment would be that the 


Amherst campus didn't realize or 
accept the fact that the seventies 
were not the sixties, that the bloom 
was off the rose," Wood said. 

During Wood's tenure, the 
Amherst campuses budget has 
risen from $41 million to $72 million. 

"I find great satisfaction in 
having been able to recommend 
and have approved a series of 
distinguished professors over scale 
particularly in the natural sciences! 
and satisfaction in the arrival of the 
Rossi's on campus," he said. 

"The other thing I guess I would 
say, is that the Amherst Alumni 
have become over the seven years 
a much stronger more active, more 
supportive group," he said, "when 
we came in the Alumni Association 
was running a deficit of 75,000 and 
now there is a pattern of giving that 
is the best in New England and the 
best above B. U. and a good deal of 
that started here." 

Of all the tasks he has been 
required to do, Wood said that 
"maintaining a survival budget and 

then getting it back to normal" has 
been the toughest task. 

The Kennedy Library has been a 
source of great satisfaction, he 
said, "but that's one of the dividend 
activities that make it fun." 

"Seeing Boston when people 
believed we would disrupt Dor- 
chester, tie up traffic on Morrisey 
Boulevard and the Southeast 
expressway, you take what was a 
town dump and housing project 
and a defunct shopping center, and 
you put a working campus there, 
and you begin to modernize 
housing without displacing 
people. ..the momentum for the 
redevelopment of a depressed and 
isolated penninsula has been a 
source of great satisfaction," he 

But the "less dramatic and more 
time-consuming" job of- lobbying 
for a higher budget has kept Wood 
busy for most of his seven years. 

On the subject of reorganization, 
Wood said "it ought to take place," 
but only if the state colleges and 
universities remained autonomous 
from the chief executive's office. 

In the recent past, the schools 
have been "like a family in trouble, 
with members starting to turn on 
themselves," he said. 

Wood defends this position by 
pointing to a legislative vote of two 
years ago, which upped all out of 
state tuition. The University was 
forced to "move money" or lose all 
its foreign students. 

A new threat to fiscal autonomy, 

UMass President 
Robert C. Wood. 

Wood says, is Gov. Michael S. 
Dukakis' recent request that all 
faculty collective bargaining be 
handled through his department o* 
Administration and Finance. Wood 
says the end result of such a plar 
would be to equalize all professors 

"We'd be back to where we were 
in '62 where A&F had to approve 
the appointment of any professor," 
he said. 

While Wood said he gets along 
well on a personal basts with 
Dukakis and Boston Mayor Kev n 
White, he critized the governors 
administration for not being more 
open to higher education in 

The full text of the interview will 
be printed in the Collegian's Back 
to School edition August 31st. 


State asks for clean steam 

By September 1979 the smoke 
emitting from the UMass coal fired 
steam plant will be acceptably clean 
by state standards. 

A "consent decree" between 
UMass and the state Building of 
Bureau Construction states air 
pollution control devices will be 
added to the old steam plant in two 

The decision to stick with the old 
steam plant, originally scheduled to 
be replaced by the oil-fired Tillson 
Farm plant, was made in May by 
the UMass Board of Trustees. 
According to a trustee report, costs 
to improve the old plant and 
continue using coal fuel were much 
cheaper than repairing the 
numerous defects in the three year 
old Tillson plant and paying the 
projected price of oil to power the 

The estimated cost to upgrade 
the air standards of the coal plant is 
about $2 million. 

Grad towers tested again 

One more test for background 
noise will be held sometime this 
week at the Graduate Research 
Center towers, said Stephen Joyce 
of the Lower Pioneer Valley Air 
Pollution Control office in 

Joyce said he "feels there is a 
noise problem," but he would like 
to "verify the background noise." 
Joyce said machinery in the 
computer center of the low rise of 
the center was not shut off during 
the last noise test a few weeks ago. 
This week there will be a complete 
Joyce said he expects "all the 

Marty Maceda 

cooperation in the world from the 
University officials," when deciding 
what steps to take in alleviating any 
excessive noise. 

Noting the tower noise problem 

is not the "type of thing settled 

overnight," Joyce said the problem 

will not be resolved this summer. 

Reservoir arrests 

Hadley police have arrested 20 
people since Sunday for 
trespassing at the town reservoir 
where a woman had been raped 

• * • 

Violators of the by-law can receive 
a fine ranging from $2 to $20. 

Thompson shut-down 

Thompson Hall will be shut off 
Friday morning from 8:00 until noon 
to allow physical plant workers to 
rectify problems with the main 
power switch. 

Building coordinator Sara 
Cramer Ives said there were 
problems last spring with lights in 
the tower stairwell going off and 
on. Some wall clocks were also 
affected, she said. 

Edmund J. Ryan, chief project 
engineer for the physical plant said 
other shutdowns may occur during 
this summer in buildings presently 
unoccupied for various repairs. 
Signs with Patriots 

UMass graduate Dennis Fenton 
has signed a free agent contract 
with the New England Patriots, 
now in their training camp in 
Smithsfield, Rhode Island. 

The six foot, three inch Fenton 
played the defensive line for the 
Minutemen football squad, and 
wrestled as a heavyweight for the 
mat team. 

July 3. Of the 20, only a few have 
been charged with violating a town 
by-law which prohibits swimming 
in the reservoir, according to 
Hadley police. 

Those arraigned Monday at 
Northampton District Court 
pleaded no contest and were fined 
$10. The seven arrested Monday 
and arraigned Tuesday pleaded not 
guilty with their cases continued for 
one year without a finding. Should 
these seven be arrested again at the 
reservoir, Judge Alvertus Morse 
warned them they would face 
severe penalties, Hadley police said. 
Others will be arraigned later this 

Town selectmen decided to post 
the reservoir off-limits after a 
Hampshire College woman was 
raped July 3 while returning from a 

Denis P. Gagne, arrested a few 
days later in the UMass Campus 
Center, pleaded not guilty at his 
arraignment Friday on two counts 
of assault and battery and one of 
rape. Gagne's hearing is set for

Talk of the town 

Marty Maceda 

While we were driving at 70 
m.p.h. around Amherst with all tne 
windows open and sp r aying each 
other with ice water fiom a plant 
sprayer, we decided tc search for 
alternate ways to beat the heat. 
Upon arriving on campus we im- 
mediately jumped into the campus 
pond to swim laps, and then 
collapsed upon the couches in the 
air-conditioned concourse, 
pretending to be asleep. 

We registered for a cooled room 
in the Campus Center hotel and all 
over heated friends weie invited up 
for a cocktail party where the ice 
cubes flowed freely. Eventually, 
everyone removed their clothes and 
had an ice orgy. 

That went fine until one of the 
custodians notified us that an over- 
enthusiastic person had crawled 
into the icemaker and was soon to 
become a permanent fiyture there if 
he wasn't removed. He quick'y 
defrosted and immediately hopped 
a plane to catch the second part of 
Summer Session at the University 
of Iceland (we expect a postcard 
any day). 

The next day we wen? to the mall 
and sat all afternoon in the dark, 
cool theatre reading magazines in 
the back corner by flashlight. That 
evening, the lower level of the 
Campus Center was packed to 
capacity with TV viewers who were 
taking advantage of the cooled air 
their semesterly fees have provided. 
There was a line of people who 
were camping out overnight in 
order to be the first ones to apply 
for a meat-cutter's position which 
required extensive time inside the 
food service's freezer. 

The atmosphere in Amherst has 
changed markedly since tiie heat 
wave began. People have taken to 
sleeping all day, waking in early 
evening. Except, of course, the sun 
lovers who stroll to class nearly 

nude, carrying only their pens and a 
couple sheets of paper. We have 
heard the infirmary has become 
overcrowded on particularly warm 
days with people pretending to be 
sick so they can be pampered with 
air conditioning and recent 
selections of the more popular 

Caravans of students and 
workers are skipping out and 
heading for the ocean. They may 
never come back. Friendships have 
been renewed over ice cream soda. 

Visiting those friends with air- 
conditioning in their apartments, at 
least the lucky ones who don't pay 
for utilities, is becoming vogue. One 

area resident is facing possible 
eviction from his landlord because 
his friends have not left the 
apartment for a week. Snow 
damage is reportedly the cause of 
the complaint. 

So as we sit here using a couple 
of blocks of ice as seats, waiting for 
the Ding-Dong cart, we hope you 
too can find suitable ways to get 

We suggest a flavored freeze 
pop, a trip to Puffer's pond or the 
nearest garden hose and an ice cold 
shower from a can of Moxie. 

As the Fonz would say 'Keep 
coot, eehhhhhhhhyyyyyvYYYYY-

Bus stops 

To the editor: 

I want to apologize to the people 
who were waiting for the 4:10 
Sunderland bus and the 4:43 
Belchertown Road bus, both of 
which never showed up, and the 
extremely late 5:13 Sunderland bus 
on Thursday, July 14, 1977. I was 
supposed to be driving it, but, by an 
oversight, did not know it. 

During the summer, there is a 
book at the Transit office con- 
taining a page for every day of the 
summer, on which the drivers sign 
up for the shifts we want. There are 
also sheets listing other peoples' 
time that they have signed up for 
and cannot drive. The drivers had 
been guaranteed by the 
management that the names would 
be changed in the book from these 
sheets to keep it up to date. 
However, this particular shift had 
not been changed, so I did not 
know I was supposed to drive. My 
own copy of my time was misplace 
when I recently moved. So had the 
book been changed by the 
management as promised, the bus 
would have been there. 

At this time, after 4% years o 4 
driving, I wish to submit my 
resignation within the next wee* 
from the Transit Service 
Disagreements over many aspect! 
of the bus service in recent month; 
and the increased number of mino 
mistakes made by people in a 
positions have influenced nv 
decision to resign prematurely. I 
and others, have become ver 
disillusioned with the Transi 
Service and find it difficult V 
remain there. 

I want to thank many of th 
people who have made my jo 
most enjoyable for the past fe\ 
years. I am truly going to miss man 
of you. 

Again, I am very sorry for an 
inconvenience that the Trans 
Service caused you last Thursda

Playing with softballs 


Well, we're midway through the 
summer. In less than six weeks 
UMass students will return for yet 
another fun year. 

Though there are the academic- 
nuts returning, along with them will 
be the intramurally-minded jocks, 
now with a summer of Softball 
games behind them. 

Softball is an unbelieveable, 
great-time sport. In and around the 
Amherst-Belchertown area alone, a 
team can enter in several different 
leagues. Greenfield even has fast- 
pitch softball leagues. But for the 
most part, slow-pitch is played. 

The sport was made for fun, it's 
more serious cousin being baseball. 
Anyone can play softball; only the 
proficiency changes. 

Teams in an organized league 
may take it a little more seriously 
than pick-up teams. What hurts, 
then, is when a team enters a 
league, figuring to do well in it, only 
to lose a zillion games. Teams 
forget it's supposed to be fun, not a 
mini-World Series match. 

Players, especially men, 
remember that since anyone can 
play it a guy should be a superstar. 
And that's when softball could get 
the reputation of a frustrating 


A team is started and all the guys 
on it think they're superstars. They 
can't conceive being mediocre in it. 
They start losing and making ex- 
cuses for their misfortune. The 
umps, errors, the pitching — all 
have been blamed; never lack of 
athletic ability. 

It's probably better not to play in 
a league. Places like McDonalds, 
Zayres, Burger Kings, etc., all form 
teams (at least, most places that 
have enough employees that want 
to play start teams). 

Currently, I'm playing out my 
option on a McDonalds team in 
Hyannis. Somehow last year I was 
the coach, and inherited it again 
when I arrived here three weeks 

Now you should know Mc- 
Donalds doesn't generally do their 
hiring according to athletic ability (I 
wish they would). 

Last year's Mc team was not bad, 
surprisingly, and compiled a 5-1 
record, playing other McDonalds 
on the Cape. It was fun, but too 
easy (I guess we had too much 

This year is different. We're 
playing games gainst area 
businesses and occassionally, 

another McD's. And we're losing. 

Lost to Pancake Man (12-11), 
International House of Pancakes 
(IHOP for short, 21-9), Baxters (21- 
20). We're 0-3. 

The other places want to win. 
We want too also, but not as much 
as them. 

We always drink more beer (root 
beer?) than they (should never play 
softball without it) but that has 
nothing to do with the losing 
streak. If it did, the solution would 
be simple (get the other team to 
drink more). 

We're not down though. Not that 
we get off on losing, but it's just 

We make up our own schedule. 
Coming up is RErJ's, Baxters again, 
and a local radio station which just 
won its first game in three years. 

Our shirts will be in soon. I'm 
gonna have 'Smitty' put on the 
back, and 'Coach' on the front. 
Maybe even Bill Lee's number (37) 
on it also. 

We will win a game (hopefully). 

And we'll go crazy when it 

But if it doesn't that's okay. 
Softball is for fun. I don't enjoy 
losing, but somebody has to 

One thing's for sure. Softball can 
be expensive, especially if you 
happen to be the coach. 

I have to bring the beer. 

King holds trump card 


There is a new breed of hero 
emerging on television, on stage, 
and in paperback days. His heroics 
are not what we have traditionally 
bestowed laurels upon, however; 
he is more of an anti-hero in the 
school of Martin Mull, the new late 
night hero conceived by Norman 

One such character that we have 
recently been exposed to is Larry 
Larkin, a hero of sorts in Eleanor 
Brooks and Jean Kerr's Broadway 
hit King Of Hearts. It was per- 
formed last week "under the tent" 
at the Mt. Holyoke College Summer 
Theatre to a receptive audience 
(every show, including the night of 
a near hurricane, was sold out.) 

A couple of reasons for the 
show's success were Phil Kilbourne 
and Jeffrey Deutsch who played 
opposite each other vying for the 
affections of Dunreath Henry, 
Larkin's secretary and bride-to-be, 
played by Joan Courtney. 

Larry Larkin is a shmuck of 
enormous proportions and Phil 
Kilbourne portrays him at his worst. 
He's a New York cartoonist who 
draws a bigger-than-life picture of 
himself as the champion of the 
kneehigh population, and a great 
benefactor to humanity by his mere 
existence not to mention a 
humorist, philosopher, chivalrous 
poet, creator of great quips, and 
political analyst. 

Jeffrey Deutsch, who stole the 
show last week in A Funny Thing 
Happened On The Way To The 
Forum, again won a standing 
ovation for his performance of 
Francis X. (Xerxes!) Dignan, 
Larkin's ghost cartoonist while he 
and Dunreath Henry are 
honeymooning on the Riviera. He's 
a weak-knead jellyfish sort of 
character, but very likeable when 
up against Larkin and he soon wins 
the heart of Ms. Henry. 

The play is mostly about 
Dunreath Henry though. Her well- 
ordered life is suddenly disrupted 
by the two men and a small boy, 
played by Gregory Holcomb, who 
she has been persuaded into 
adopting by her future husband as 
a publicity stunt to boost his career. 
Joan Courtney plays her role very 
convincingly, perhaps because the 
character is the most realistic of the 
group. There is nothing outlandish 
about her, save her charming name 
that rings more like a royal title. She 
is at the center of her life just as she 
is at the center of the performance, 
and is much like the Mary Tyler 
Moore-type woman that we are 
now accustomed to in prime time. 

In a similar analogy. Jack Neary 
(who played Pseudolus in Forum 
last week) is the Lou Grant friendly 
boss type. He's Larkin's editor at 
the cartoon syndicate and con- 
cludes after much deliberation that 
his early morning hangovers are 
not the result of too much soda 

water, too much ice. "I think.. .it's Mt. Holyoke College Summer 

an unpopular belief... I think it's the Theatre will be putting on The Lion 

llc !uor! In Winter and will star the group's 

Directed by Gloria Muzio, King founder-director, Jim Cavanaugh, 

Of Hearts proved to be entertaining in his one and only performance of 

from start to finish. This week the the season.

Almost all of the items 

housed in the museum 

are from the mid-17th 

to 18th centuries. 

Curator Robert Saunders: "I've only had 
trouble recently with 55 grade school kids 
from South Hadley, and once I had to throw 
out four hippies who wouldn't behave 


It's a big white building behind 
the Hadley Town Hall on Route 9. 
Admission is free, as is parking, and 
the place owes its existence largely 
to donations. The reason it's closed 
seven months out of each year is 
simple — no heat. 

I am referring to the Hadley Farm 

A large flat stone lies on the lawn 
in front of the building. Robert 
Saunders, the curator of the 
museum, tells me the stone is often 
referred to by professors as a 
sacrificial stone, but in reality, the 
stone was the base for a cider 
press. It comes from Pelham and 
was left to lie in front of the 
museum in 1935. It's kind of 
tempting to walk on it as you 
approach the museum. 

An isosceles wooden structure is 
observed from one corner of my 
eye as I head for the open door of 
the museum. I am later informed 
that it is a dunking well from 
Mansfield, Connecticut. 

The interior of the museum looks 
like a barn converted into an an- 
tique store. The earthy brown 
wooden interior is in sharp contrast 
to the stark white exterior. 
Stagecoaches crowd the museum. 
I approach a modestly dressed man 
seated by one of the windows, and 
we start to talk. 

Robert Saunders, the curator, 
tells me that the museum is sup- 
ported almost entirely through 
donations. There is an 80-member 
Hadley Farm Museum Society, 
responsible for drumming up fiscal 
and moral support for the museum. 
An open meeting is held each 
March by the society. No mem- 
bership fee is charged. 

Saunders has been curator of the 

museum for three years. I asked 
him what he considers to be the 
most interesting piece in the 
museum for three years. I am 
shown an 1870 hand-powered lawn 
mower, which looks to me like a 
large disposable razor. 

To me, however, the most 
memorable piece is the Hadley 
town scale, which dates back to 
1848 and is kept in its original closet 
in the museum. It may not stick out 
in everyone's mind after leaving the 
museum, as may the Ben Franklin 
stagecoach, but the mint condition 
and black-gold brightness of the 
scale was an aesthetic treat *or me. 
Although it hasn't been tested 
since 1916, I am told that it is still in 
perfect shape today, and will wiegh 
anything from a gram to 50 pounds. 

The museum consists almost 
entirely of farm equipment. There's 
a 178-year old stagecoach, a 
tobacco baler, blacksmiths' tools, a 
roomful of coopers' (barrel 
makers') tools, sleighs and more. 

Brooms are still made at the farm 
museum Broom-making was once 
a booming industry ir\ Hadley, and 
in the museum remains the only 
one out of 150 broom-making 
factories which once operated 
there. The machine is kept upstairs 
at the museum, and they sell about 
30 brooms each month. 

Almost all of the items housed in 
the museum are from the mid-17th 
to 18th centuries, ana all items 
which come to rest in the place 
must be at least 100 years old. 

The museum building itself was 
formerly a hay barn. The windows 
were added in 1929, and a new 
foundation was lain in the same 
year. The stone walk leading to the 
front door of the museum is from 
the original Hadley town meeting 

house, and an antique smokehouse 
(which some term a "doghouse") 
rests outside on the far side of the 

A weather vane was rescued by 
friend of the museum as it was en 
route to the garbage dump in the 
mid-'30's. UMass Amherst, original 
owners of the vane, wanted it back 
last year for its archives, but the 
Hadley Farm Museum Society 
decided to decline the request, 
since they saved it from being 
trashed and have kept it for so long. 
Speaking of UMass, a few choice 
pieces from the farm museum are 
on loan at the campus, and can be 
seen on one of the top floors of the 
University library. 

The museum is visited by about 
850 people each month. Children 
are allowed in the museum if ac 
companied by an adult, and during 
the school year it is a popular place 
for field trips. Saunders estimates 
that during the season the museum 
entertains about 500 school kids. 
"I've only had trouble, though, over 
the past few months from 55 grade 
school kids from South Hadley, and 
once I had to throw out four hippies 
who wouldn't behave themselves", 
says Saunders. 

The museum is a pleasant place 
to visit. It is well cared-for and gets 
a complete cleaning each spring. 
There are plans to utilize the five 
acres of land which surround the 
building, and a separate carriage 
shed will be built in the near 
future. The museum is open 
Tuesday through Saturdays (from 
May 1 to October 15) from 10 a.m. 
to 4:30 p.m., and 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 
p.m. on Sundays. 

And what does Robert Saunders 
do with his vacation time, when the 
museum is closed for the winter? "I 
visit museums," of course. 

Admission is free at the 
Hadley Farm Museum

Years ago, over 150 broom-making factories operated in Hadley. The farm museum, 
however, operates the only one currently active, and about 30 brooms are sold each month

Events set 
for Cuban 

The Western Massachusetts 
Committee for July 26th will be 
hosting and participating in several 
events this weekend and next to 
which the public is invited. 

The committee will be joining 
with students and staff of the North 
Amherst Youth Center for a day- 
long work project to improve the 
appearance of the center's grounds 
on Friday. On Saturday, the group 
will be sponsoring a free party and 
dance in the Campus Center which 
includes a raffle. 

July 26th is the anniversary of the 
military attack on the Cuban 
garrison, the Moncada. This attack, 
led by Fidel Castro, was defeated, 
but the movement regrouped in 
Mexico until it finally became 
victorious in December of 1959. 

The day-long work project at the 
Youth Center stems from the 
Cuban example of citizens donating 
their time to work on a community 
project. Materials for the project 
have been donated by Michael J. 
Wanczyck's Nursery in Hadley. 
Work in the center's grounds will 
begin at 1 1 a.m. and last until 7 p.m. 
Some members of the committee 
wno have participated in the 
Venceremos Brigade, a national 
educational project which makes it 
possible for North Americans to 
work and tour in Cuba for five 
weeks, will be available to answer 
questions about their experience. 

On Saturday night, the com- 
mittee will sponsor a free party and 
dance on the 10th floor of the 
Campus Center from 8 p.m. to 1 
a.m. There will be taped Latin and 
soul music for dancing. A slide 
show of Cuba and a multi-media 
exhibit of Cuban an and culture will 
also be on display. 

Raffle tickets will be available at 
the door. Prizes will be a bottle of 
rum from Cuba and a ticket to In 
Concert with Cuba — End the 
Blockade, the national July 26th 
event to be held at the Lincoln 
Center in New York City on July 3 . . 
The ticket includes transportation. 

"This year the committee feels 
that it is particularly important to 
inform U. S. people about Cuba in 
light of the recent lifting of the 
travel ban and other developments 
in Cuban-U. S. relations," com- 
mittee spokespersons say. 

The committee is sponsoring a 
bus trip to New York for the 
national celebration July 31. 
California Rep. Ronald V. Dellums, 
from the U. S. House of 
Representatives, will be the 
keynote speaker. He recently 
returned from a trip to Cuba. Pete 
Seeger, the Alvin Ailey Dance 
Company and Los Papines, one of 
the most popular Afro-Cuban jazz 
bands, will perform. Tickets for the 
event, including the bus trip, are $7. 
For further information, call 549- 

* Budget 


state to provide an additional $2.3 
million to the $68.1 Amherst 
campus budget to accommodate 
the higher salaries. 

The separate allocation, he said, 
upped the fiscal year 1977 
operating costs for U Mass- Amherst 
to $70.4 million. The fiscal year 
begins July 1 and ends June 30. 

Out of the $72.5 million ear- 
marked for UMass next year, 
$600,000 has already been set aside 
for cost of living salary increases 
granted this spring. After this cost, 
the campus is left with an extra $1 .5 
million to divide among the three 
major areas of the campus - 
academic affairs, student affairs 
and support services. 

Acaderrnc programs will receive 
$1 million of the additional funds, 
while $300,000 is earmarked for 
student support services and 
$200,000 for facilities maintenance 

The three vice chancellors, Paul 
L Pureyar, Robert L. Woodbury 
and James L McBee, are expected 
to identify the vacant positions to 
be filled in their respective areas 
within the next few weeks. 

JULY 20, 1977 

The temperature last week may 
not have broken any records, but 
they certainly warped a few, and 
the entertainment in the area was 
just as hot. 

Shown on this page are a few of 
the local events which drew people 
away from their air conditioners 
and made them forget all about the 
heat wave. 

The bogus Bogey here is 
Bob Sacchi, who is 
famed for his finely- 
honed impersonation of 
Humphrey Bogart. 
Sacchi re-enacted scenes 
from several Bogart 
classics in the Student 
Union Ballroom last 
Wednesday evening. 

Jim Paulin 

The Namedroppers provide some dancing music at the first annual 
WCAT country and western jamboree at the Athol Town Hall. Also ap- 
pearing was the phenomenal 16-year old Tina Welch with the John Penny 

Paul Logue, Jr. 

Mayall at the Nail 

John Mayall, 44-year old 
blues giant, performed 
before a crowd of over 
800 at the Rusty Nail in 
Sunderland. The lead-off 
act for Mayall was the 
Pam Bricker Band, a 
local favorite. 

Approximately 800 fans last 
Tuesday crowded into the Rusty 
Nail, a popular Sunderland 
nightspot, to listen and dance to 
the tunes of John Mayall, 44-year 
old jazz-blues-rock musician. As 
people gulped icy drinks and beer, 
Mayall entertained the folks with a 
professional blend of vocals, 
harmonica, keyboards and guitar. 
Looking like he was a young punk 
teenage idol, Mayall was shaking 
like a vibrator to the music ex- 
plosion he was producing. At one 
point, the star jumped down from 
the stage and danced with the 
pretty ladies in the audience, as 
others too far away reached over 
shoulders to touch the semi- 
legendary figure. 

Mayall's strong point is the blues. 
His harp is sharp, yet mellow 
enough to take you away from your 
troubles for a bit and let you 
discover his. His stage presence is 

Meanwhile, the heat of the night 
rose as did the thirst of the crowd. 
Waitresses carrying $22 orders 
squeezed their way through the 

wavering crowd to serve up a Pit of 
relief from the heat. 

The first set was handled by the 
Pam Bricker Band, a local group 
whose appeal has spread quickly in 
the last year. Bricker's vocals are 
the mainstay of the group and she 
really belts out a song. More of this 
group will definitely be heard soon. 

Who are the Dillards? Having 
been together for 15 years one 
would think that more people 
would have heard of their sweet 
harmonizing and country picking 
music. But the bar Woody's, in 
Washington, Mass. was only half- 
full and the Dillards were great. 
Dancing was the key to having a 
good time and everyone took 
advantage of the extra room and 
cleared numerous dance spots. 
Another highlight of the 
evening was a gruffy-looking 
hippy who took the stage with the 
group to pick away at the banjo. 
This guy was Arlo Guthrie. 

Together, they spun a web of 
bluegrass that sent the place reeling 
in its wake. Nothing like country 
music in the Berkshires.

Keeping the jass alive 


When someone says "Dixie", it 
conjures up visions of colonels 
watching the Kentucky Derby while 
holding cold, sweaty mint juleps in 
the hand that isn't holding the 
walking cane with the gold handle 
in the shape of an eagle's head. Or 
images of slaves working under the 
squinty eye of a red-necked, whip- 
wielding overseer. Or civil rights 
marchers in Selma. Or Lester 
Maddox and his pick handle. Or any 
number of other images. 

But if that someone were to say 
"Dixieland"... ah — now that's 
another story! And the Preservation 
Hall Jazz Band, my friends, was 
another story, when they played 
the Fine Arts Center Concert Hall 
last Thursday. 

Technically speaking, the 
Preservation Hah group is not a 
"Dixieland" grout Dixieland music 
is often performed by bands who 
play music and try to be an amusing 
act at the same time. Preservation 
Hall's form of New Orleans jazz (or 
jass, in its original spelling) is not 
funny music. It is, rather, serious, 
sad, happy, glorious living music, 
played by the men who made their 
names at it. 

Preservation Hall is not one band. 
Before there was r band there was 
the building, Preservation Hall in 
New Orleans. There jazzmen, (yes, 
and women) gathered — and still 
gather to play. The band was 
formed there, and started touring 
from there in 1961. There are now 

several Preservation Hall Jazz 
Bands, according to banjoist Narvin 
Kimball, including a 40-member 
marching band. 

Many members of the band, like 
Kimball, were among those who 
fathered New Orleans jass. Others, 
like trombonist Frank De Mar, are 
of the young players who will keep 
the art alive. 

casional assistance on harmonies 
by Kimball. 

I blush to disclose that I did not 
behave at all as a proper critic 
should. Not only did I not keep a 
running list of the songs played, but 
I did not keep a properly detached 
attitude, either. I was part of the 
crowd that stamped and whistled 

The Preservation Hall Jazz Band, straight from 
New Orleans' French Quarter, livens up an other- 
wise-dull Thursday. The Fine Arts Center show was 
sponsored by Summer Activities 77. 

As to last Thursday's per- 
formance: as usual the band had a 
packed house and, equally as 
usual, had the whole crowd on its 
feet often during the performance. 
The band switched easily and often 
between fast, upbeat, foot-stomp- 
ing music and mellow slowness, led 
by the trumpet of Ernie Cagnolatti. 
Vocals were generally provided by 
pianist "Sing" Miller (nicknamed 
appropriately enough), with oc- 

and cheered during the show and I 
was one of the crowd that had that 
deliciously slap-happy grin on its 
collective face by the time the band 
finished its finale of "When the 
Saints Go Marchin' In." 

And if this performance is any 
indication then I expect that 
members of the Preservation Hall 
Jazz Band will be right in front, 
setting the step for that happy

L Shakespeare— sort of 


I suppose it's my job as a critic to 
warn you about this one. The 
double by-line should have tipped 
me off from the start. The City 
Studio Theatre's current 
production of As ' ou Like It by 
Don Nigro and William 
Shakespeare is indeed by Don 
Nigro and William Shakespeare. 
The latter's adaptation of the bard's 
comedy- romance could very well 
be entitled "Variation on a Theme 
by Shakespeare" *or there is much 
to be said on where Shakespeare 
leaves off and Nigro takes over. 

It is not so much a play as it is a 
staged event — a happening that 
we are privy to. It concludes in a 
very 60'sish audience involvement, 
awareness bit that rather over- 
shadows the performance; but then 
again demanding an applause is 
very much in the Elizabethan 
tradition. But the play's the thing 
that's not. 

Nigro lets the audience "in" on a 
performance by a roving acting 
troupe comprised mainly of 
lunatics. Among them is 
Shakespeare himself, though the 
question is raised by one actress if 
he is indeed Shakespeare or "only 
God." Nonetheless, he serves as 
director and man-of-a-thousand- 
faces. Portrayed by Michael Rusk, 
he is the frenzied, overtaxed 
director and his numerous 
character roles are the center of 
many laughs. 

The insane narratress of the play 
is Rosalind — not the Rosalind of 
Shakespeare's As You Like It but of 
Nigro's as he'll have you have it — 
Janice Collett Cuddy plays her with 
much enthusiasm and convinces us 
that there's no method to this 

Shakespeare's Rosalind is played 
by Kathryn Quaintance. She puts 
on what is perhaps the finest show 
of the entire performance if you 
have come in search of 
Shakespeare. She delivers her lines, 
those that the bard originally in- 
tended to be spoken, in true form 
and in the character of Ganymede 
(Rosalind disguised as an 
Elizabethan gentleman) her heroic 
stance is in the grand tradition of 
theatre romance. 

Blithering William, who becomes 
(eventually) a graceful Orlando, is 
Jamie Newcomb who stole the 
show during A Midsummer Night's 
Dream as Puck the goatboy. At first 
he stammers out his assigned lines 
and is quite humorous in that role. 
Later, as the simpleton gets a feel 
for his part Newcomb still attracts 
the laughs as the hero-lover. 

Now to outline the plot is a bit 
difficult. If you are familiar with 
Shakespeare that may not help you 
in the least — but even if you have 

no passion for the bard you can still 
catch a few laughs. 

In many ways the play was 
overdone. It was too long — they 
could have easily dispensed with 
the mock intermission in which the 
stage cast lunches and exchanges 
criticisms of the play and each 
other. Some of the humor was lost 
the first time around. The fact that 
we are looking backstage at this

You Like It. 

performance allows for some rather 
funny episodes but the humor does 
not progress. Characters lose their 
lines, miss their cues, and quote 
from the wrong play at times and 
are constantly racing back to the 
wardrobe to prepare for their next 
part — this is funny, for a while. 

What keeps the show going is 
the acting. No bones to pick here; it 
was first rate. Rusk's charac- 
terization of the evil Duke as a 
Brandoesque godfather is brilliant. 
Larry Harpel's portrayal of Jaques, 
who is given two chances to recite 
his famous "all the world's a stage" 
and bumbles it, is equally refresh- 

All in all the antics outdo the 
action. If you're not offended by 
this "obscenity", as one character 
claims it to be, against its author 
you'll find it a well invested night 

The Nigro/ Shakespeare As You 
Like It will continue at the Pines 
Theatre in Look Park, Florence 
through August 12 and will run 
every Wednesday, Thursday, and 
Friday. Curtain time is 7:30, box 
office opens at 6:45 p.m. 

A near tempest greeted theatre- 
goers at the City Studio's opening 
night last week. The evening before 

that, when The Lion In Winter 
debuted at the Mount Holyoke 
College Summer Theatre in- South 
Hadley the cast as well as the 
audience dealt with 90 degree plus 
weather. What complicated 
matters worse is that the play takes 
place at Christmas time in 12th 
century France and the players 
were dressed appropriately. 

In his only appearance of the 
season, founder-director Jim 
Cavanaugh played King Henry II. 
His enthusiastic performance 
dominated the evening but did not 
overshadow the tremendous effort 
on the part of the much younger 
summer stock. 

Katie Budge was elegant and 
regal in her role as Queen Eleanor of 
Aquataine, King Hal's unbreakable 
wife and prisoner. The character 
remained firm and did not change 
any during the performance and 
Budge kept up her stiff-lipped and 
seemingly emotionless expression. 

The three vying princes were 
equally played well. Jack Fahey's 
overperformance as John, the 
spinless youngest son who was 
later to claim the throne, was very 
effective and pretty much cornered 
the laughs for the entire show. 

Paul V. O'Connor emanated a 
sense of great power and strength 
by his deep tones, gestures, and the 
way he carried himself as Richard 
the Lionhearted. 

Jeffrey Deutsch, who has 
previously played some hilarious 
parts with the Summer Theatre was 
the calm, calculating middle and 
most neglected son, Geoffrey. His 
performance was most convincing 
especially to those who have seen 
him in other roles during the last 
three weeks. 

Not since the murder of Caesar 
has there been more plotting, 
conniving, or backstabbing than in 
this play. The central issue is who 
will inherit the throne after Hal 
passes on. Counter to this the king 
plans to have his marriage annulled 
so that he might marry his mistress, 
Princess Alais played by Kit Liset. 

Between the three sons each of 
them draws the young French King 
Phillip (Peter Massey) into their 
conspiring. Nothing is resolved at 
the finish that concerns the plots 
outlined above. There is a brief 
reaffirmation of love between Hal 
and Eleanor but it's back to the 
Tower of London for her with a 
promised Easter furlow if she 
behaves herself. 

This week the Summer Theatre 
will put on Picnic and will feature 
Katie Budge once again and Phil 
Kilbourne who has up to now 
played some very humorous roles. 
For information call 538-2406. 
Tickets must be reserved; curtain at 
8:30. Through July 30.

Reorg backers plan for fall 



Student leaders working to draw 
up a proposal to reorganize student 
government have turned their 
attention to September, when they 
must report their plan to the Un- 
dergraduate Student Senate and 
begin an intensive lobbying effort 
to win its passage. 

The students and professional 
staff of the student- run advocacy 
services, such as the Legal Services 
Office, have been meeting nine 
hours a week throughout the 
months of June and July to come 
up with the proposal. 

The reorganization plan which 
has surfaced from the series of 
summit" talks was mandated by a 
senate vote last spring. 

A committee of three has been 
chosen to produce a final report on 
the talks, a job which will include 
reaching some procedural decisions 
in certain areas that were not 
finalized during the summer talks. 
If the document is accepted by 
the senate, a group which is now 
composed of representatives 
elected from residential areas, 
student government will eventually 
evolve into a "student federation" 
or 'student union" which will 
include representation from 

academic and Third World areas as 

The "federation" or 

"association" as it could be called, 

is based on a union model instead 

of the representative government 

model now used. 

Any student paying the Student 
Activities Tax Fee, which finances 
student groups, area-wide events 
and dorm events, would become a 
member of the "unit" in his or her 
dormitory or academic department. 
As a member of the unit, the 
student would be eligible to attend, 
vote and chair council meetings in 
their unit. 

Once the council attains a 50 per 
cent plus one membership in a unit, 
it becomes recognized by the 
"federation" or "association" and 
is eligible to participate in the pan- 
University residential or academic 

Third World students have the 
option of participating in Third 
World related councils and pan- 
university boards. 

The academic, residential and 
Third World boards will send 
"spokespeople" to a 

"spokesboard," charged with 
presenting a "contract" to the 
administration based on the needs 

of students participating in in- 
dividual councils. 

Student leaders attending the 
summer talks say they are con- 
cerned that some people might 
think reorganization "will be 
rammed down their throats" in the 

One of the final meetings of the 
summit talks, held last Friday in the 
basement of the Campus Center, 
produced animated discussion on 
whether the proposal should in- 
clude a time table for im- 

Speaker of the Student Senate 
Brian Delima said he was against a 

September starting point" because 
the plan "needs ample discussion 
in the senate" before a vote is 

"I don't want it to be railroaded 

through," he said, "right now, the 

academic affairs committee has 

three members." 

DeLima said he did not want 

reorganization to turn into another 
S59", a bill to reorganize certain 

aspects of student government 

which passed by only a few votes in 

November of 1975. 
Those attending the Friday 

meeting reached agreement on a 

five-point implementation plan for 

Bonnie Levitsn 

reorganization, proposed by 
Student Organizing Project worker 
Susan Birmingham. 

The report to the senate will ask 
senators to first change the name 
of the Student Government 
Association (SGA) to the student 
federation or student association as 
a symbolic gesture. 

Then, as soon as the senate felt 
enough discussion had been heard 
on the proposal, they would vote to 
include academic council 
spokespersons in the senate to 
serve along with elected 
representatives. As councils formed 
in dormitories and living areas, 
elected representatives would step 
down, until the assembly would be 
composed only of council 

A coordinating committee 
composed of current senate of- 
ficers, and representatives from the 
three pan-University boards as they 
formed, would gradually move 
toward the role of a spokesboard as 
more students begin participating 
in councils. 

One of the basic reasons for 
drawing up a reorganization 
scheme, summit attendees say, is 
student empowerment. Student 
leaders are trying to open avenues 
of participation they say will make 
the whole organization stronger. 
Student Organizing Project 
member Greg Tarpinian said, 
"Aside from the normal (SGA) 
people, we hope to attract people 
that are concerned abut getting 
things done in departments and in 
dorms, like getting a dining 
commons in a dormitory if they 
want one." 

But DeLima disagrees. "I fear it 
won't be much different than 
now," he said, except there will be 
direct accountability to the 
spokesboard, and the councils will 
be more action oriented. 

SGA President Jon A. Hite, who 
also attended Friday's meeting, 
disagreed with Birmingham's plan. 
"Changing the name is super- 
fluous," he said. 

"Before we get too far with the 
structure," he said, "let's see if we 

Greg Tarpinian 

can deliver " 

Both Hite and Student Trustee 
Pinky Batiste, elected as SGA co 
presidents last spring, say they are 
reluctant to endorse the proposal as 
it now stands. 

Batiste said that while some of 
the plan is a good idea for the fall 
she wonders whether it is wise for 
the SGA to reorganize at this time 
Next year, the campus will be in 
transition - the president is 
leaving, the governor is planning on 
writing his reorganization for public 
higher education, the faculty union 
is negotiating its first contract and 
Chancellor Randolph W. Bromery 
will continue as executive vice 

"I don't think the students can 
artord a transition now," she said. 
Hite says while there are im- 
provements the SGA could make in 
delivering services to students, "It's 
about time student government 
starts asking students what they 
want instead of telling them what 
they want." 

Meanwhile, Delima is working on 
a survey to be sent out to students 
in September to do exactly that. 
DeLima will also be meeting with 
student leaders in October for a 
two-day conference to discuss 
what issues the association, in 
whatever form it takes, should work 

As these develope, 

reorganization proponents hope 
that caucuses will form in councils 
to protect special interest groups 
such as women, gay people, racial 
minorities and the Recognized 
Student Organization groups.

reorganization to turn into another S59, a November 1975 senate reorganization MM

No pros 

No professional football teams 
will be renting the UMass athletic 
facilities this summer, according to 
athletic director Frank Mclnerney. 

Last year the Green Bay Packers 
spent a-few days on campus and in 
previous years, the New England 
Patriots drilled here. 

Justin L. Cobb, of building 
facilities for the School of Physical 
Education, Monday said the 
housing and food services on 
campus benefit the most when a 
professional team uses UMass 

There is a "very minimal" 
financial benefit for the School of 
Physical Education, Cobb said. 

Cobb said the presence of a 
professional team on the campus 
during the summer months helps 
the University in avoiding layoffs in 
the dining and housing areas. 

The Patriots, he said, have been 
"in and out" of the UMass campus 
in the past 12 summers. The 
original contact between UMass 
and the Patriots, Cobb said, oc- 
curred because Patriot owner Billy 

Sullivan and the former dean of the 
School of Physical Education were 

The Patriots first trained at 
UMass on the old Alumni Field 
where the Whitmore Ad- 
ministration building now stands, 
Cobb said. 

Since then, the Patriots have 
held the training campus at UMass 
off and on throughout the years 
even after the current coach, Chuck 
Fairbanks, came to the team said 

The Patriots now train in Smiths- 
field, Rhode Island.

Court to charges of breaking and

The UMass president's office in 
Boston will soon be losing two 
senior level officers as both the 
Secretary to the University and to 
the Board of Trustees Gladys Hardy 
and Associate Vice President for 
University Policy John T. Eller 
announced their intentions of 
leaving for other public posts. 

Also announced by the 
University last week was the ap- 
pointment of an Interim Chief 
Negotiator for UMass to handle 
faculty collective bargaining Garv 
W. Wulf. U y 

The Hardy and Eller an- 
nouncements came about a month 
after UMass President Robert C. 
Wood announced his intentions to 
resign effective January 1977. He 
has been president of the University 
for seven years. 

Hardy, whose duties as secretary 
included maintaining and coor- 
dinating correspondence between 
the president, trustees and 
chancellors of the three UMass 
campuses, in addition to duties 
relating to University policy and 
budget, will be taking a post as 
deputy director of the National 
Institute of Education, a federal 
research agency. 

At the Institute, Hardy will work 
under Patrick A. Grahm of Harvard 

Hardy, 48, prior to her job with 
the University, had been the 

executive director of the Public- 
Private Forum, an organization of 
public and private college

Thanks a lot 


This is itl We are so thrilled that 
everyone enjoyed our column so 
much that we didn't even receive a 
single letter ot comment. So, in 
order to seek out new life and 
explore other cultures, we are 
heading to Europe. 

But in all due respects, we owe 
gratitude to many people who 
helped inspire our columns. First, 
Marty Maceda, whose graphics, 
time and humor boosted our 

— to our closest friends who 
never read them; 

— to the editors who put in long 
hours, put up with late deadlines 
and made absurd headlines; 

— to people who gave us a 
chance for criticizing President 
Carter for approving the neutron 
bomb and the Supreme Court who 
wants to keep poor women 

— to the Campus Center coffee 
shop for closing so damn early; 

— to the heat wave which melted 
our minds; 

— to the quietude of the summer 
in Amherst which gave us time to 

— to the Toward Tomorrow Fair, 
which left us uninspired; 

— to the many dreams which 
became our columns; 

— to the transient life which will 
again take us away and keep us 

— to ice coffee and cold beers; 

— to Puffer's Pond where we 
could drown our sorrows; 

— to Tuesday draught and 
Wednesday night drinks at Poor 

— to the chair in the front yard 
which revolves according to the 
swing of the sun; 

— to the young punks that will 
soon be old punks. 

But, things aren't all bad; Now 
we have these to look forward to: 

— no more absurd columns by 
Prunski and Logue. 

— an influx of 25,000 students 
arriving before Labor Day. 

— a harvest of sweet corn, 

watermelon, beans, tomatoes and 
other delicious valley-grown 

— moving into your new dorm, 
apartment, house, tent, or, if the 
winter is as bad as last year, igloo; 

— the end of Summer Session 
and the end of your twelve-month 

— the Daily Collegian will start 

— the Bluewall opening; new 
people to meet; 

— and growing older by learning 
from your past mistakes and ex- 

We must thank the Summer 
Activities Office for such things as 
the free movies in the CCA an'i the 
concerts presented in the Fine Arts 
Center, among other things. 

— the infirmary for calamine 
lotion (3x) daily. 

— thanks for the summer 
romances, walking and sitting by 
the campus pond, ice cream 
downtown, frisbee and jogging. 

— the abundance of strawberries 
which you pick yourself and eat 
right off the vine. 

— the thunderstorms, which 
magnificently lit the darkness and 
excited the evening. 

Last but not least, we are thank- 
ful for good health and living in a 
time of peace; we wish patience 
and, of course — love for all.

To the Editor: 

How was your first smoke? 

Every cigarette you light up near 
me is like a first smoke. I become 
hyperactive and physically upset. In 
short, I get aggravated. This is a 
feeling I don't enjoy. Relaxation 
exercises can't help, because they 
invariably involve breathing 
exercises. Breathing tobacco 
smoke (one of the things I am most 
allergic to) only makes me asth- 
matic and even shorter of breath 
and more hyper. My nose clogs 
while it is trying to filter out the 
particles of smoke and my eyes 
water. I was taking an exam once, 
when someone lit a cigarette. My 
eyes watered and swelled so badly 
even though the cigarette was 
immediately put out, that I was 
forced to leave the exam half 
finished, and make my way, blind, 
to the infirmary to have my eyes 
washed out. 

There are many situations in 
which I have absolutely no control 

over what I breathe, but in a place 
where I am forced to be as a result 
of a chosen activity, such as a 
classroom, a bus, or a movie 
theater, or even a grocery store, I 
feel I have the right to ask people to 
put out their cigarettes. I have 
'encountered a lot of resistance to 
this idea, however, and some 
people think that I am a fanatic. 
What they do not realize is that I am 
just reacting physically to the effect 
of a drug (tobacco) on my physical 
being. My body's hyperactivity 
gives the appearance of fanaticism 
when it is combined with the 
nausea I feel when someone is 
smokina near me. 

A person has the right to kill 
oneself any way one wishes. To 
force me to feel ill, or to otherwise 
impair my less-than- healthy norm is 
unpardonable, and I will use any 
method available to fight such

Lambert, 18, were apprehended 
Saturday night by UMass police on 
campus following a break-in at 
Henry Adams drug store on So. 
Pleasant St. 

Police later said they recovered 

various drugs, including cocaine, 

opium, "uppers" and "downers", 

believed stolen from the drug store. 

More reservoir arrests 

Hadley police arrested three 
more people for trespassing at a 
town reservoir since last week. So 
far, 23 people have been arrested at 
the reservoir since the police began 
a crackdown on offenders July 15. 

Those arraigned over the 
weekend either pleaded not guilty, 
with their cases continued August 
9, or received a one year con- 
tinuance and $10 fines for court 

Police began enforcing town by- 
laws which prohibit swimming in 
town reservoirs after a woman 
reported to police July 3 that she 
was raped while returning from a 
swim in the reservoir near Hamp- 
shire College. 

Ri;hard P. Gagne, arrested 
short ly afterwards in the UMass 
Camous Center by police and 
charged with two counts of assault 
and battery and rape, had his case 
continued in Hampshire District 
Court this Friday, after being in 
court last Friday. 

Potential swimmers had better start heeding this 
sign at the Hadley town reservoir — 23 persons have 
been arrested in less than two weeks who didn't listen 

Parking fee still uncertain 


The UMass Parking office has 
run into some stiff opposition in 
trying to balance the budget of the 
Campus Center Parking Garage, 
which is not taking in enough 
money to support itself. 
^ Parking Office Coordinator 
Susan K. Campbell said the first 
thing the University did to try to 
balance the parking budget was to 
"look around and see if everybody 
was paying the full rate for 

Staff and visitors at the UMass 
owned Marks Meadows Elementary 
School were not. 

Under a long-standing 

agreement with the town, the staff, 
who were hired, managed and paid 
by the town of Amherst, were only 
being charged a small "registration 
fee" to park in the Marks Meadows 
lot while visitors parked for free 
under the jurisdiction of the school 

The registration fee, once paid by 
staff, was reimbursed by the town. 

But if a proposal brought forward 
by the University at the town's 
School Committee meeting last 
week is adopted, staff will be 
paying the full fee of about $17, 
Campbell said. 

Also proposed by UMass in a 
memo from the parking office and a 
letter from Chancellor Randolph W. 

Bromery, was a fee of $1 per day 
for each visitor's space the school 
would wish to maintain, a fee which 
would amount to $180 for the 
school year. 

Supt. Donald B. Frizzle said the 
basic reason the board voted 
against the University's demands at 
their meeting was accessibility for 

"The University and the town of 
Amherst have a long-term 
agreement that the University 
would provide the facilities and the 
town would provide programs and 
staff with the understanding that 
the public school include accessible 
free parking," he said 

Under the current agreement, he 
said, the principal has a block of 25 
passes he used to his discretion for 
visiting parents. 

Frizzle said the use of meters or 
the Campus Center garage for 
visitors, as UMass suggested, is 
"out of the question." 

A parent coming in for a short 
conference with his child's teacher, 
or to pick up a child, will not want 
to park at the center of campus and 
walk to the school, located on the 
north side of campus past the 
North Physical Education Building, 
he said, and the meters are usually 

Frizzle said the committee is 
waiting for a reply from the 

Grads show concern 
over employe funds 


Members of the Graduate 
Student Employees Union (GSEU) 
summer task force last week ex- 
pressed concern over the ad- 
ministration's decision to use 
mcnies in the fiscal 1978 budget to 
hire additional teaching assistants, 
teaching associates and research 

The members, at a weekly 
meeting Thursday, said they were 
concerned over stability of em- 
ployment for graduate student 
workers if these funds are then 
used to hire faculty for the 
following fall, assuming the 
University's budget is adequate. 

Once the hiring process is 
completed for new faculty, the 
funds will no longer be available for 
the graduate employees, they said. 

Thf GSEU is seeking to represent 
graduate student workers in 
ective bargaining with the 
\Jr versity. Hearings have been 
completed with the National Labor 
delations Board, "Who will decide if 
students may proceed with a 
camous wide election to vote on 
vhether -hey want t be 
-eprpsented by the GSEU 

Members say that until that 
decision is handed down, they do 
not wish their names to appear in 
public, since not all have signed 
contracts for the upcoming 
academic year with the University. 

GSEU members also said they 
felt pay scales for teaching 
assistants, compared with faculty, 
are disproportionate in relation to 
the work-load and contributions of 
each group. 

The union will also be asking 
academic deans for more data on 
the number of teaching assistants 
used in various departments in an 
effort to determine why some 
departments rely heavily on 
graduate employees and others do 
not. The group cited the Rhetoric, 
Sociology and Economic Depts. as 
those which seem to require large 
numbers of graduate employees. 

The group also said they would 
be investigating the possibility of 
setting up a job referral service for 

The group also announced a 
dance would be held September 
16th at the Quonset Hut on Rte. 9 
to benefit the GSEU general funds. 

chancellor on the vote. 

"Exactly how we'll resolve it, I 
don't know," he said. 

Campbell says she doesn't know 

"I have to go into some meetings 
to find out what we're going to do 
about this, so it's still up in the air," 
she said. 

up for grabs 

The UMass Board Trustees is 
expected to decide tomorrow on 
the composition of a search 
committee to find a new president 
for the University. 

UMass President Robert C. 
Wood announced his intention to 
resign last month after seven and a 
half years as president. 

Student trustee Pinky Batiste 
said in a recent interview that she 
and Boston student trustee Judy 
Baker want to get three students 
appointed to the search committee 
two students at large and one 
student tijstee. 

The board, meeting at the 
Worcester Medical School, will also 
reconsider its June vote to approve 
120 athletic tuition waivers for 
Massachusetts athletes. 

Wood broke an eight to eight tie 
vote last time, casting his ballot in 
favor of the waivers. Several board 
members were absent from the first 
vote, however, and Batiste said this 
could change the final tally. 

In addition, trustee Budget and 
Finance Committee Chairperson 
Bruce Carlson resigned from the 
board effective June 30th. He voted 
for the waivers in June. 

Batiste said the issue will be 
complicated by the fact that 
Chancellor Randolph W. Bromery 
has already given out 65 of the 
waivers to athletes accepted for the 

If the board rescinds the June 
vote, money to finance those 65 
tuitions will have to come out of the 
Barber fund, the athletic 
scholarship fund, which is already 

The hoard is also expected to 
discuss where to locate the 
president's office, now at One 
Washington Mall in Boston, once 
the 1978 operating monies and the 
lease run out in October. 

A sub-committee's recom- 
mendation for selling UMass' 
shares of stock in companies with 
holdings in South Africa will come 
before the full board in September

JULY 27, 1S-77 


The first session of summer 
intramurals was on the whole more 
successful than last year's, ac- 
cording to coordinator Jim Kearny, 
with the most popular sport being 

The English Department's 
softball team was victorious in the 
first round of action for the sum 
mer, out of the total of eight teams 
that participated in softball action. 

Kearney said more faculty and 
graduate students participated than 
did undergraduates. 

In the tennis competition, Mike 
Royer and Cliff Arnold finished the 
season undefeated in men's 
doubles. In mixed doubles, Eric 
Nagel and Rosanna Fallabella took 
top honors. 

Judy Gallucci finished first in 
women's singles, although she had 
to put up a good fight against 
Louise O'Gorman and Kathleen 
Nolan to win. 

The most popular tennis division 
was men's singles, with 19 men 
struggling for the championship. 
Eric Nagel won here too, defeating 
Mike Royer 6-2, 6-0. 

The June 16th cross-country 
race ended in a tie between Ed 
Sandifer and Doug Stewart. 

The "FoodFolks" took the 
volleyball title for the first session. 

UMass students, faculty and 
staff have all been using the athletic 
facilities Kearny said. 

While the gymnastic equipment 
is closed up, the pool, gym, tennis 
courts, weight rooms, handball 
courts and squash courts are open.

The Amherst-Northampton 
Committee for July 26th organized 
two events for this past week in 
solidarity with Cuba. The com- 
mittee comes together each year in 
order to initiate and carry out 
activities in celebration of Cuban 

This year's activities in the 
Amherst-Northampton area 
consisted of a work project at the 
North Amherst Youth Center and a 
party at the Campus Center. 

On Friday, Jury 22 members of 
the committee and the staff of the 
North Amherst Youth Center 
worked from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. 
gardening, painting and cleaning. 
Throughout Cuba there are neigh- 
borhood committees, called 
Committees for the Defense of the 
Revolution, which function in many 
ways, one of which is to initiate 
work projects similar to the one 
organized by the committee for the 
youth center. 

The committee said they felt the 
best way to celebrate the victory of 
the Cuban people would be to 
initiate such a work project. 

Hadley Garden center, Michael 
Waznyck Nurseries, and Fred 
Englander Pots and Plants donated 
flowers, shrubs and cacti for the 

On Saturday evening in the 
Campus Center, a free party was 
held which was attended by over 
150 people. The evening included 
dancing, a raffle and a continuous 
slide show of Cuba. The first prize 
in the raffle was a ticket and bus 
ride to a concert to be held in New 
York on July 31, entitled "In 
Concert with Cuba 1977 - End the 
Blockade." Los Papines, an African 
Cuban Percussionist group will 

The celebration of July 26th was 
begun to honor the struggle of Fidel 
Castro and the Cuban peoples to 
end the Batiste regime in Cuba in 
the 1950's. 

On July 26, 1953, Castro and over 
100 men and women led an attack 
on the Moncada Garrison. The 
garrison was symbolic of the 
tyranny and brutality of the Batiste 

The attack was a military defeat, 
since many of the people par- 
ticipating were imprisoned, tortured 
or killed. However, July 26th 
marked the beginning of an in' 
tensified struggle for liberation 
which culminated in January 1959 
with the victory of the Guerilla 
army, led bv Castro.

"They don't like us, and they don't even

youth referring to some of his Summer St 
neighbors who object to the location of a 
detention home there. 

Neighbors filed complaints with the town 

last spring against a Summer St. house as a 

short term holding facility for court involved 

boys by its owners, brother and sister Pete 

and Martha Christopher.

The boys sleep downstairs, the 
Christophers upstairs. 

The Christophers began operating the

purchased the property last October

while she and 

During the summer, about 10 full time 
oeople work at the home, while the staff 
numbers about 25, mostly part time, in the 
tan and spring semesters. 

Last year, students interned there as part 
of their degree programs. Martha said she 
hopes to recruit another group of work study 
students and interns from the five colleges 
tor September. a 

The boys in the Christopher home have 
committed minor offenses, Martha said 
Breaking and entering and unarmed robbery 
are the most serious crimes. 

'The average boy doesn't need to be 
k» UD In an institution," she said 
Martha describes the house as a "very 
strict home," which "institutes" rules as thev 
become necessary. 

"There is a logical reason for every rule " 
she said. 

Peter said no physical discipline is used 
against a boy who breaks a rule or fails to do 
an assigned chore. If a boy decided not to 
help work around the house, he loses 
the benefit of using the game room ex- 
plained Peter. The boy may still watch TV or 
just sit around, Peter said. An occasional 
early trip to bed may be used as strict 
discipline, he noted, adding a stay at the 
house is almost a "vacation" for some of the 
boys. The boys usually wake up at 9:00 every 
morning, and gradually make their way to 
bed around 11 p.m. 

A game room with a pool table and dart 
board and crafts room, along with a TV 
stereo and decks of cards, are some of the 
recreational attractions for the boys inside 
the house, while on the top floor of an ad- 
jacent barn is a padded area for wrestling and 
weight training. Out in the yard is a volleyball 

The boys also go, with supervision, to the 
local swimming and recreational facilities the 
Christophers said. Many times, they said, a 

boy enjoys simply accompanying a staff 
member on an errand. 

Last week, the boys and staff visited the 
quarter-mile slide at the Mt. Tom Ski area 

The boys also pick the menus, the 
Christophers said. Martha estimated her 
monthly food shopping bill is about $600 
She said she saves $100 a month by using 
coupons and shopping all the sales 

Every night Martha said she bakes some 
kind of dessert treat for the boys and staff 

Separate meals are served at some of the 
other homes, the Christophers said The 
guardians would eat steak while the boys 
would have macaroni and cheese everv 
night, they said. 

The Christophers said their home has the 
reputation as a "good place to be" amona 
youths in the DYS. 

Some boys "run away from foster homes 
to come back," they said. The Christophers 
said about 80 per cent of the boys maintain 
contact with them after leaving. 

One boy, the Christophers said, had been 
known in the DYS as a hard-to-handle youth 
before coming to their house. He was "real 
nice" while under their supervision, and 
"cried when he left," they said. 

"The kids were really upset" during the 
April ZBA hearing, Martha said. 

"I have a very strong feeling we're not 
affecting anybody," she said. 

"I was very uncomfortable when people 
around me didn't like me." 

If they lose the two appeals, the 
Christophers said they intend to keep 
working in the Center program. They said 
they might consider just having two foster 
children in their home, or possibly supervise 
independent living situations for youths in 
the Amherst area. 

Should the Christophers win their battle 
with the zoning and code regulations, 
Martha said they would stop operating the 
group foster home in July 1978.

JULY 2? 1977 

Elderhostel '77 closes shop 


Elderhostel members relax after a barbecue dinner held in their honor last 

About 150 senior citizens have made UMass their 
temporary home this summer as part of the 
Elderhostel program, an educational program which 
allows older people to experience college life. 

The senior citizens have been living in Hamlin 
dormitory in Northeast for the stay at UMass, which 
could range from one to three weeks. While they are 
here, they take credit-free workshops which have 
been set up by the Arts Extension Service, a part of 
the Division of Continuing Education, and eat in 
student dining halls. 

One of the final events before the last group of 30 
students left UMass, was a chicken barbeque. The 
event was followed by a videotaped presentation 
created by the students themselves. The students, 
aged 60 to 88 ended the evening with a sing-along to 
the rhythmical sounds of John Shibley. 

The Elderhostel program is part of a regional effort 
to provide the elderly with an academic experience 

during the summer months. 

Next year, Elderhostel Director Marty Nolan wants 
to make the program nation-wide. 

At UMass, the Arts Extension Service provided the 
classroom scheduling and instructors as part of their 
summer credit-free workshop program. The 
University's Conference Office takes care of the elder 
students residence and eating arrangements. 

There are some 30 colleges and universities par 
ticipating in Elderhostel throughout New England. 
The program began a few years ago as a pilot 
program with the University of New Hampshire. 

Among the UMass staff working on the Elderhostel 
are Cheryl Weinberg, resident director and her 
assistant Brian Barch. 

University professors and others taught the 
workshops for the program, including Brass Ensemble 
Conductor Walter Chestnut, who taught a course in 
music appreciation.

Voyage to the bottom 


lM>4 the DEEP, starring 
Jacqueline Bisset, Nick Nolte and 
Robert Shaw. 

As I have indicated in past 
reviews, the trademark of cinema in 
the '70' s is the disaster film. We 
have been a party to massive 
conflagrations, earth quakes, 
towering infernos and air disasters 
every year since 1975. Lucky us. 

The majority of films in this genre 
demonstrate either the inadequacy 
of man's own technology or 
nature's tempestuous wrath — 
above-ground. However, with the 
advent of Jaws, a new breed of film 
was spawned. This is the disaster 
film, which pits man v. nature's 
creatures, or creature v. creature, 
under water. We have all seen films 
that had underwater sequences; 
however, they were concerned with 
the theme of man v. man, set in a 
disparate environment (man's 
inhumanity to man, blah, blah...) 
while this new breed examines the 
conflicts that arise when we intrude 
upon the quite solitude of the 
murky Deep. 

The Deep, Peter Benchley's 
watered-down version of Jaws, is a 
film that will be noted for its 
photography and its suspense, 
nothing more. The film concerns a 
young couple (Jacqueline Bisset 
and Nick Nolte) on honeymoon in 
the Bahamas, who while skindiving 

find a rusty medallion and an 
ampule filled with an unknown 
substance. Needless to say, the 
ampule is shrouded in mystery, and 
soon they are pursued by forces of 
evil (Lou Gosset and his friends). 
They find shelter in the custody of a 
crusty, tough, seagoing cur- 
mudgeon named Treece Roman, 
played well by Robert Shaw. It 
turns out that the vials contain 
morphine, easily convertible to 
heroin, and the medallion is from a 
ship that went down with part of 
the Spanish Armada, carrying 
countless treasures. The problems: 
get the morphine up, but prevent it 
from falling into the clutches of the 
big terrible bad guys; find the 
buried treasure, recover it and make 
millions; stay alive; and don't get 
eaten alive by the film's star, a 
moray eel. 

The film's biggest asset, aside 
from Jackie Bisset, is the un- 
derwater photography in blazing 
color. It is beautiful, splendiforous 
and breathtaking. The scenes 
above water are particularly 
unimpressive, as is the acting. The 
acting award goes to the eel, who 
played his part with incredible 
character and depth. 

Robert Shaw tries desperately to 
save this film, with his marvelous 
accent and expressive coun- 
tenance. However, his character is 
sorely underdeveloped; we are 

presented with this deep, dark 
mysterious character, accorftpanied 
by a hulking Quasimodo, without 
knowing any particulars of his life. 
In this respect, the film should have 

followed the book more closely. 
Nick Nolte has been hailed as the 
new Robert Redford, but Redford 
can go to sleep at night without 
worry. Nolte is sorely ill as ease in

many scenes, as opposed to 
Redford's uncanny ability to look as 
if he isn't acting at all. Nolte is too 
mechanical in his approach, as 
contrasted to Redford, or for that 
matter Shaw. 

Jacqueline Bisset is beautiful; 
there are no two ways about it. She 
is one of the most beautiful figures 
around, as well as face, which 
admittedly I would enjoy seeing in 
various stages of dishabille. 
However, she is also amply en- 
dowed with acting talent, as she 
has demonstrated in the past, in 
such pictures as Night For Day and 
Murder On The Orient Express. 
Peter Yates, the director of The 
Deep, has instead decided to ex- 
ploit her body, however, pure and 
simple. I must admit that it is 
probably difficult to act when you 
have been stripped and pinned 
down on a bed by men dressed in 
voodoo disguise, who proceed to 
paint your body in check blood 
using a chicken blood using a 
checken's claw as the paintbrush. 

The film has threads of racism, 
besides its rampant sexism. The 
bad guys are all black, and the 
whites are the good guys. It may be 
true that many native Bahamans 
are indeed black, but when the 
breakdown between good-bad and 
black-white is so thorough, one 
must begin to question the film's 

Let's face it, I am not going to go 
overboard and try and bail out this 
film, but if you enjoy suspense and 
skindiving, it could be a real trout — 
er, treat. Without sounding washed 
up, wish-washy or fishy, the film is 
badly flawed and shallow. The 
characters flounder around 
hopelessly, the plot can give you a 
haddock, and you may feel eel-at- 
ease when Bisset is enmeshed in 
the tentacles of the criminals. 
Besides that, it's entertaining and 
certainly diverting. You may just 
have a whale of a time. Clam up, 
you cry? One thing before I go: just 
remember the last of Murphy's 
Laws of Random Perversity: 
"nature is a bitch." Sea you later.

Atco-Boy, does this record suck. 
Riff-rocking of the most boring 
mindless variety. Titles suggest 
punkdom ("Go Down", "Dog Eat 
Dog", "Hell Ain't A Bad Place To 
Be"), but the only time they display 
any balls is in getting up to play. A 
snoozer. (PM) 


Rollers attack Bowie. 

Bay City Rollers; IT'S A GAME: 
Arista -Alright, what one song 

would you least expect the Bay City 
Rollers to cover? The correct an- 
swer is Bowie's "Rebel Rebel" 
which they in fact do play here, and 
it's very close to the original and it's 
totally out of place among the 
orchestral schmaltz and discofied 
funk that fills out the rest of this LP 
It's also pretty funny. For Bowie 
and BCR collectors only. (PM) 

The Demons; THE DEMONS; 
Mercury - If you're going to steal, 
you might as well steal something 
good. The Demons rip off everyone 
in sight, and the result is a fine 
piece of rocknroll rehash. All that 
bothers me here is the obviously 
bandwagon-phony punkiness, i.e 
"She's So Tuf", "She's A Rebel" 
and "I Hate You." 

The Jam; IN THE CITY; Polydor 
(import) — Among maybe a half 
dozen classic tracks released to 
date in the British punk rock genre 
is included the first Jam single, 
which doubles as the title cut of 
their first LP. It's greatl As an extra 
bonus, you get the latest recording 
of "The Batman Theme." This one 
is hot, folks and folkies, so get it

Every profession has its own 
particular magazines, dealing with 
the newest techniques, tools and 
developments in their fields. 
In the past year or two a new 
trade magazine has been added to 
the already-voluminous group, 
catering to a hither-to ignored 

The magazine is named Soldier 
Of Fortune: The Journal of 
Professional Adventurers. Yes, dear 
friends, there is now a manual for 

Published by Omega Group Ltd. 
172854 28th St., Boulder, Colorado 
(farewell, Rocky Mountain high!) 
the magazine sells for two dollars 
per issue and is well worth reading 
at least once. 

Perhaps one thing should be said 
at the outset. I'm paranoid. I trust 
neither the left, the right, nor the 
middle. The left would have me 
because a face less cog in the 
collective machine; the right would 
make me a nameless cipher in their 
Law and Order computers; and the 
middle would like me to be a 
simple, harmless nonentity. 
Because I trust no one, I like the 
idea that there is someplace where I 
can mail away for a copy of a book 
telling me how to make "tear gas, 
explosives, firearms, silencers, 
poisons, zipguns, grenades, knock- 
out drops, flamethrowers and a 
wide variety of weapons, (as well 
as) how to buy most of the needed 
chemicals from your grocery and 
garden store." (The Poor Man's 
James Bond by Kurt Saxon, $10 
from Atlan "G" Formularies, P.O. 
Box 438, Eureka, CA, 95601.) 

The people who put the 
magazine together would appear to 
know what they're doing, if one can 
judge from the staff list: 
editor/ publisher - Lt. Col. Robert 
K. Brown; contributing editors — 
Lt. Col. J. Cooper (combat pistol 
craft); Maj. G. C. Monte, (Guns); 
Capt. J. Leatherwood 

(sniping/ contersniping); to name 
but a few. I won't even run down 
the list of names for the automatic 
weapons, martial arts, paramedic 
operations, knives/ police 
weaponry, terrorism/ Latin 
America, SWAT, or demolitions 
Or the staff chaplain. 
I have sitting before me the 
September, 1977 issue of SOF. This 
issue's cover story is entitled "U.S. 
Merc Destroys Cuban Spy Ring", 
about a certain David Bufkin who 
let himself be hired and trained for 
espionage by members of the 
Cuban Embassy in Mexico City and 
the Cuban Consulate in Montreal. 
Other articles include "Rhodesian 
Castle Keep: Drums Along the 
Pungwa"; "ROK Special Forces, 
The Tigers of Korea", a technical 
review; "Rhodesia Rolls Her Own, 

will travel 

The R-86 Submachine Gun"; a 
photo and caption essay on Sentry 
Removal; and field- testing a new 
type of cold-weather survival 
clothing (it lets water vapor 
through, but not liquid water in!) 
Besides the feature articles, there 
are also the regular departments in 
every issue: "Full Auto" (proper 
use and care of your automatic 
weapon); "Flak" (letters to the 
editor); "Steele on Knives" (Q&A 
by David Steele, editor); "In 
Review" (book reviews) and 
"Bulletin Board" (News and notes 
from around the world). 

And then there are the ads. By 
ordering from the advertisers in 
SOF, one can buy personal CS (tear 
gas) guns, army surplus clothing 
and equipment, anti-bugging 
devices, night surveillance scopes 
(at $2400 eachl), fighting knives 
with concealable shoulder or boot 
sheaths, copies of the CIA/ Sp- 
ecial Forces Improvised Weapons 
Handbook, survival foods, 
blowguns, "Rhodesia is Ready 
When You Are" T-shirts, a sub- 
scription to Vigilante, The 
Magazine of Personal Security, 
WW II Nazi memorabilia, bullet- 
proof vests (From $95-$350) and a 
lot of other equally amusing stuff. 
There are doubtless a lot of 
people reading this who think that 
such a magazine is depraved and 
sick and shouldn't be allowed to 
publish. I disagree totally. 
Remember, "when guns are 
outlawed, only outlaws, the police, 
the spies and the military will have 
guns." Personally, I don't trust any 
of those groups as far as I could 
drop-kick Alex Karras. I'm glad that 
the government hasn't got us so 
tightly controlled yet that we can't 
still try to defend ourselves from 
them. The day that they don't let us 
find out about, much less obtain, 
the technologies available to them 
is the day that the people, and the 
individuals that make up the 
people, will be right where the man 
wants them - tight in the palm of 
his hand while he's squeezing...

and presto, a platinum album. (PA)

different R&B styles of the last 20

Summer Activities 

Summer Activities exists to 
provide evening entertainment 
for UMass summer school 
students and to give incoming 
freshmen attending summer 
orientation an idea of the 
cultural presentations they will 
be exposed to as full-time 
undergraduates here. 

Summer Activities receives 
two dollars per student for each 
week they are enrolled in 
summer school. The funds, 
which will amount to an 
estimated $40,000 this summer, 
are then channeled into the 
coordination or cultural 
presentations and such outside 
activities as WMUA-FM, the 
intramural sports program and 
the Summer Collegian. 

Helen Schneider, a former 
resident of Amherst and now a 
recording star with a new 
album, entitled So Close, on 
Windsong Records, will 
perform here tomorrow night 
at 8 in the Fine Arts Center 
Concert Hall. Sponsored by 
Summer Activities '77, the 
show is free. 

Schneider's music is an 

amalgam of the classical music 
she studied growing up in 
Brooklyn and Pomona, New 
York, the jazz and blues 
records of Ella Fitzgerald, Billie 
Holliday and Bessie Smith that 
she discovered on her own, 
and the rock music that was a 
staple of teenaged life. 

After moving to Amherst 
she formed a band and toured 
Western Massachusetts, play- 
ing the area for six years. 

"Bang The Drum Slowly", a 
motion picture about death 
and baseball, will be presented 
by the UMass Summer Film 
Program, a division of Summer 
Activities '77, August 2 at 8 
p.m. in the Campus Center 
Auditorium. Admission is free. 

The final presentation in the 
series is August 9, also at 8 
p.m. in the CCA, and also for

for UMass

AUGUST 3. 1977 



WORCESTER - Chancellor 
Randolph W. Bromery, if he 
decided to become a candidate for 
the UMass presidency, may be 
answering to an acting president 
come January 1 who is now in a 
lower managerial position within 
the University. 

According to a plan approved by 
the Board of Trustees at their 
meeting in the Worcester medical 
school last week, the acting 
president, if the University should 
need one, cannot be considered in 





WORCESTER - University 
lawyers are examining the legality 
of a vote taken last week by the 
Board of Trustees to reconsider 
implementing tuition waivers for in- 
state athletes competing in in- 
tercollegiate sports at UMass. 

The board voted in June in favor 
of tuition waivprs for 120 athletes 
by a vote of nine to eight, with 
President Robert C. Wood casting 
the deciding vote for tho waivers. 

At last week's meeting, the board 
voted 12 to 1 1 in favor of rescinding 
the June vote, sending the matter 
of athletic tuition waivers back to 
the Committee for Student Affairs. 

But Robert J. Spiller, who chairs 
the Committee on Buildings and 
Grounds, objected to the vote 
because Secretary of Educational 
Affairs Paul Parks requested the 
board to reconsider the June vote. 
The move is improper under 
Robert's Rules of Order, he 
claimed, since Parks did not par- 
ticipate in the June vote. 

Board Chairperson Joseph P. 
Healy referred the matter to 
counsel. If the attorneys agree with 
Spiller the move to reconsider will 
be held invalid until a trustee who 
did vote in June asks the matter be 
brought up. 

Amherst Chancellor Randolph 
W. Bromery has already given out 
66 of the waivers, he told the board 
Thursday at their meeting in the 
Worcester medical school. 

The administration has estimated 
the proposed waivers will be 
equivalent to about $48,000 to 
$60,000 of the $1.25 million the 
University returns to the state's 
general fund in tuition each year. 

Bromery told the board that eight 
of the 66 waivers given out have 
gone to women athletes, but "the 
thing you have to remember is the 
money you free up in the Barber 
fund (for athletic scholarships) 
gives you more flexibility." 

If the waivers are reconsidered, 
he said, the money to pay these 
students' tuition must' come from 
the Barber fund. Tuition is due 
August 9th. 

Newly-appointed trustee Haskell 
Kassler, an attorney from Brookline 
and political supporter of Gov. 
Michael S. Dukakis, said when he 
read the minutes of the June 
meeting, "I had to keep checking to 
make sure I wasn't reading the 
minutes of the trustees of the New 
England Patriots to decide how 
much they were going to pay their 
draft choices." 

Kassler questioned the boards 
decision to go ahead with athletic 
tuition waivers since the total 
proposal will come up for a board 
vote in September. 

Bromery has said he believed 
tuition waivers for athletes was a 
"first step" to getting similar 
waivers approved for other 
students who have contributed 
outstanding service to the 
' University, such as fine arts per- 
formers or dorm counselors. 

the search for a permanent 

The plan, the result of an ad hoc 
committee on the Search process 
chaired by Ruth Morganthau, will 
probably force the administration to 
dip beneath the campus chancellor 
level if Bromery decided to put his 
name in for president. 
^ Boston Chancellor Carlo L. 
Golino will most likely be retiring 
next year, when he reaches age 65. 
According to University policy, 
senior level administrators will be 
asked to retire at age 65 unless a 
vote of the trustees enables them to 

Sources close to the trustees say 
Golino will not be the recipient of 
such a vote. 

Worcester Chancellor Roger J. 
Bulger is not a likely candidate for 
acting president either, sources say, 
since he is busy fighting the 
teaching hospital's large budgetary 
deficit. Bulger will be overseeing 
the implementation of a "revolving 
door" trust fund for the hospital, 
which will enable it to operate on 
revenue generated by patients. 

Bromery, who has served as 
executive vice president for faculty 
collective bargaining since March, 
will likely be serving under an 
administrator currently serving at a 
lower managerial level. 

He recently turned down an offer 
to become president of the new 
University of Washington, D.C. 

UMass President Robert C. 
Wood announced his intentions to 
resign six weeks ago, after seven 
years as president. Although he did 
not give a reason for his 
resignation, some observers 
speculate he will run for public 
office or accept another public 

Wood claims he wants to take six 
months and think about what he 
wants to do, in addition to finishing 
a book he is now working on. 

The Committee on the Search 
Process also recommended that the 
search committee be composed of 
five trustees, chosen by board 
Chairperson Joseph P. Healy; three 
faculty, one from each campus; 
two students, one from Boston and 
one from Amherst; and one "public 
member" which the committee 

.... xKijs.i&m^~*m~*!*n*!>! 

described as "perhaps being a 
former ♦rustee." 

Medical students were not in- 
cluded in the committee, Boston 
student trustee Judy Baker said, 
because students felt it would be 
difficult to find someone with 
enough time to devote to the 
search. Baker is a member of the 
search process committee. 

The faculty and student mem- 
bers of the search, the committee 
recommended, will be chosen by 
those trustees appointed to the 
search committee, "from 

nominations made by the ap- 
propriate groups on campus." 

The search committee will then 
nominate a public member, who 
will be confirmed by the board. 

The faculty and student mem- 
bers will be backed up by separate 
advisory committees on the 
campuses consisting "of not less 
than five but not more than seven 
strong, wise and representative 
members, chosen according to 
governance procedures. 

The committee also asked the 
trustees engage a senior consultant 

UMass President Robert C. Wood is on his way 
out. Two questions remain to be answered — who will 
be interim president until a permanent one can be 
named, and who will get that permanent post? 

to aide in the search, and set up 
offices in UMass-Boston's 100 
Arlington St. building. 

The committee set a "firm" 
deadline for the end of the search 
as January 1, six months from now, 
when Wood will leave office. 

Many members of the trustees, 
however, said it is doubtful the 
search can be successfully com- 
pleted in that amount of time, with 
several saying it could take as long 
as two years. 

The trustess also decided to 
allow Healy to name a search 
committee to seek out an acting 
president should one be needed. 
Gavin D. Robertson said, "It's 
well-nigh impossible to have 
someone on the job on the first of 

Faculty Senate Secretary 
Terrence Burke told the trustees 
the search committee "leaves one 
thing to be desired. It's perfectly 
possible to lack any member ex- 
perienced in academic ad- 

Burke, who said he spoke for the 
Senate's rules committee, said the 
timetable for the search was 
"incredibly short." 

Dean of Humanities and Fine 
Arts Jerimiah M. Allen, who led a 
committee of deans from the 
Amherst campus, asked the board 
to reconsider the committee's 
recommendation that the acting 
president, should one be needed, 
not be considered for the post of 

Allen, who never referred to 
Bromery by name, argued that if a 
qualified internal candidate wishes 
to be discussed for president, that 
he not be excluded from the acting 
presidential post. 

Morganthau, Wood and others 
said they would rather keep the two 
posts separate, since it had led to 
problems at other institutions of 
higher education in the past. 

Morganthau said staff and other 
employees had not been directly 
included in the search process 
oecause the committee felt the 
University existed in order to 
function as a learning center. 
Without faculty and students, she 
said, the other positions would not

Bromery in the Gulf 

Chancellor Randolph W. 
Bromery is spending this week at 
the Gulf of Mexico studying natural 
gas reserves, a University press 
release reported. 

Bromery, who earlier this 
summer rejected an offer to 
become president of the new 
University of the District of 
Columbia in Washington, D.C, was 
also recently elected a trustee for a 
national insurance company. 

Bromery, who worked as an 
exploration geophysicist with the 
U. S. Geological Survey before 
joining the UMass geology 
department in 1967, is working with 
10 other scientists for the National 
Academy of Sciences, an 
organization hired by the Depart- 
ment of the Interior to evaluate the 
possibilities of increased natural gas 
production from federal leases in 
the Gulf, the press release said. 

Information gathered by the 
scientists will be used to formulate 
a five year project of the gas 
reserves in the continental shelf of 
the Gulf, located 100 miles off 

The Northwestern Mutual Life 
Insurance Co. of Milwaukee, 
Wisconsin, has also announced the 
selection of Bromer, to its 30- 


member board of trustees. 

Bromery's previous association 
withcompany, the eighth largest 
insurance company in the U. S. was 
during 1976, when he participated 
on a five member committee which 
annually reviews Northwestern 's 
operating policies and practices. 

Out-of-state WATS shut off 

The Five out-of-state WATS 
lines on campus were disconnected 
Friday for economic reasons, 
according to Robert F. Moriarty, 
director of telecommunications. 
WATS lines are phones for which 
users pay a set fee, instead of being 
"charged on a per call basis. 

Moriarty said the move was 
"dictated by the budget." By 
January 1978, the monthly charge 

for the out-of-state WATS will 
almost double from the rates in 
1974, when UMass first bought the 
service at $905. This month, 
Moriarty said, the rate is jumping to 
$1,276, yet the "service level is the 

UMass received 240 hours of use 
monthly for that fee. An additional 
fee is charged for any extra hours. 

Moriarty said he could not recall 
what the extra fee used to be, but 
he said the new rate for extra hours 
would have been $14.70 per hour. 

UMass is keeping the in-state 
WATS lines, whose rates increased 
"only slightly" in June, Moriarty 
said. He added only two or three 
departments have informed him 
their budgets will suffer without the 

out-of-state WATS lines. 

In a July 26 memo distributed to 
campus offices using the WATS 
lines, Moriarty said savings from a 
new campus telephone rate 
structure for fiscal year 1978 will 
defray costs incurred by toll calls 
which would have been dialed on 
the out-of-state WATS lines. 

The new rate, he said, results in a 
$60 annual reduction for blue disc 
telephones, the lines with access to 
in-state, and formerly out of state, 
WATS lines. 

Moriarty added toll calls will be 
monitored "to determine the im- 
pact" of terminating out-of-state 
WATS service and implementing

"Jack C a hill and Gregg Wilson 
will embark on a mind-expanding 
trip this summer, please pray for 
their safe if not insane return. " 
Daily Collegian, April 1, 1977. 

The following is a dispatch from 
former Collegian jazz critic, frisbee 
jock and all-around man of letters. 
Jack "Ratso " Cahill, now thumbing 
across Canada with Gregg Wilson, 
former Collegian executive editor. 
The Kerouacky explosion of 
descriptive verbiage indicates an 
expansion of the mind, implosion of 
the temper, a deepening of the 
soul and erosion of the soles. 

Forthwith, the letter: 
July 8, Nonh Bay, Ontario 
Dear Muck: 

Yes, we is in Blue Jay territory, 
which is probably better than the 
Expo environs. Wilson and I ride the 
rollercoaster of hitchhiker luck 
through the strange east to-west 
contrast of Canada; we've waited 
three-and-a-half to four hours 
several times already and I tell you 
that nothing can cause more 
frustrated bile and teeth-gnashing 
than being a frustrated marionette 
of chance and charity out on the 
snarled four-lane highways of 
Montreal or the seldom-passed 
asphalt lane of Route 17 in-between 

Thumbs up 


Renfrew and Deep River. And then, 
just when you think you're about to 
come apart at the mental seams, a 
car will stop and trigger a run of 
luck that blew us 160 miles in a van 
with beers, hashish and three 
energetic young Canucks from the 
far north of Ontario who had driven 
400-plus miles to get into the Pink 
Floyd concert and failed. Stasis our 
enemy, constant motion our avart. 
Does that sound right? 

And odd people on the road: 1) a 
mad Neal Cassady Canuck 
businessman (inner soles) who 
transported us into Ottawa at 95 
mph, many genuine laughs; 2) a 
robotic sallow hitcher that we met 
at three different times on a 140- 
mile trip that would take a hammer 
from his back pocket when actively 
hitching and just pound the 
macadam with it! Name was Bickle 
or something; 3) a fat young 
English from Manchester who 
spoke of many things and 
castigated the U.S. strongly ("You 
people are a pestilence on the 
Earth"). And so on and on and on... 

Montroal was fine for a city its 
size, very cool and friendly and yes, 
we did drink and dance careening 
dances on Rue Ste. Catherine 
during the jovial black deluge of the 

annual West Indian "Roots' 
festival. A buoying madness, New' 
Orleans calypso style. 

Ottawa, the Canadian capital, 
was actually beautiful with old 
buildings, clean streets and free 
concerts. Our salute to the suave 
fucker. Have stayed in hostels for 
youth thus far until last night spent 
in mosquito soccer field. North Bay 
is grey today and dull overall so we 
go to Sudbury - Sault Ste. Marie 
— Thunder Bay and as quick a hop 
over the thousand-mile plains as we 
can manage. The Rabies is what we 
need. Record store in Montreal had 
much old Prestige and Bluenote for 
$1.99 otherwise product same, 
prices exorbitant. Picked up 
McGuanes 92 In The Shade, a 
scattered romp like previous 
volume. Still looking at things, but 
expect medulla oblangata cauldron- 
brainpan to seethe and overflow 
soon and cause the wild-eyed 
barking that nearly got loose at the 
Ponderosa Steak House last night. 

Quote of the day: "Know 
anything about North Bay?" 

Sanguine bum answer: "No, I've 
got a sister here."

Neutron opposal urged 

To the Editor: 

The neutron warhead for the 
Army's Lance missile has finally 
been brought out into view for 
public scrutiny. It's "enhanced 
radiation" and "anti-personnel" 
properties seem hideous to me and 
the reasoning behind it is beyond 
my motion of sanity. 

The neutron bomb effects people 
within a controllable "kill radius." A 
heavy dose of neutrons attack the 
central nervous system, first 
causing great suffering and then 
inevitable, horrible death within 
hours or even days. What is so 
remarkable, according to 
proponents of the warhead, is that 
it leaves buildings and things, i.e. 
property, intact. As far as I'm 
concerned, I value human and 
animal life more than things and 
find the enthusiasm of those 
proponents of the neutron warhead 
to be grotesque. 

Legislation concerning the 
funding of this warhead project has 
been hidden in the Energy Research 
and Development Administration 
budget. The House has tacitly 
approved of funding, with the 

understanding that the President 
will make the final decision. The 
Senate has not yet voted on the 
issue. Under the nuclear warhead 
production system, the President 
must personally give the production 
order, above and beyond any 
Congressional decision. The final 
stand comes from Carter; I hope he 
spends as much time on this 

decision as he spent concerning the 
B-1. It certainly is just as important. 

Write President Carter (The 
White House, Washington, D.C. 
20500) and urge him to cancel the 
neutron warhead funding.

It's cold up there 

To the Editor: 

I have just returned trom what 
will surely be my last luncheon at 
the Top Of The Campus for a long 
time. The reason I will not return is 
not only that the level of air- 
conditioning was physically un- 
comfortable; I could go back with a 
heavy sweater (if I wished to carry 
one on a hot summer day). My 
more basic reason is that I refuse to 
patronize any establishment that is 
so blatantly wasteful of energy. 

An inquiry to the staff about the 
uncomfortably cold temperature 
brought the response that, in 
passing on the many complaints 
they receive, they are told that 

nothing can be done. 

If the system for the whole 
building is that inefficient, then I 
suggest that the 11th floor be 
closed to all use during the sum- 
mer. To super-cool that floor for 
only seven-and-a-half hours a week 
seems unconscionably wasteful. 

Visitors to the campus who use 
the facility most certainly leave with 
a very poor impression of this in- 
stitution's management and its 
commitment to energy con-

Vigils, speeches, leafletting and 
films are scheduled for this 
weekend by local anti-nuclear 
power groups to commemorate the 
World War II atomic bombings of 
Hiroshima and Nagasaki, 32 years 

A small gathering of anti-nuclear 
power people Monday quietly sat 
outside the Seabrook, New 
Hampshire construction site of an 
atomic plant in protest of recent 
decisions by national agencies to 
allow construction to resume after 
a four-month suspension. 

The small demonstration was 
called by the Portsmouth office of 
the Clamshell Alliance, the group 
which organized the May 1st oc- 
cupation of the same site where 
1414 protesters were arrested on 
charges of criminal trespassing. 

The Nuclear Regulatory Com- 
mission last week lifted its four 
month ban on construction of the 
Seabrook plant a week after the 
national Environmental Protection 
Agency (EPA) overturned a 
decision of its New England 
regional office. 

The commission imposed its 
construction ban in early spring 
when the New England EPA with- 
drew its support of the plant based 
on damaging impact it said the 
plant's discharging system would 
have on the seacoast environment. 

The Circuit Court of Appeals in 
Boston Thursday denied a petition 
by the New England Coalition 
Against Nuclear Power which 
asked the court to stay the com- 
mission's approval for construction. 

The Hampshire and Franklin 
County Alternative Energy 
Coalitions are organizing the anti- 
nuclear power events this weekend 
in Amherst, Northampton, and 
Montague Plains, the site of a 
proposed nuclear power plant. 

Leslie Kriebel, of the Hampshire 
County Alternative Energy 
Coalition, Monday said vigils will be 
held from noon to 1 p.m. at the 
Amherst Common and the 
Unitarian Meeting House in Nor- 
thampton on Saturday, Sunday

and Monday. A candlelight vigil is 
also scheduled for Tuesday night, 
from 9:00 to 10:00, at the Unitarian 
Meeting House 

Speeches, music and a nature 
walk, Kriebel said, are the activites 
planned for Sunday afternoon at 
1:00 on the Montague Plains. She 
said 200 people are expected to visit 
the Plains Sunday. Parking, she 
added, should be along East 
Hatchery Rd. 

The Alternative Energy coalition 

will be operating a literature table 
Saturday in front of the Nonotuck 
Savings Bank in downtown 
Northampton, and also plans to 
distribute leaflets on job and energy 
issues of nuclear power at local 
shops, Kriebel said. 

A double feature movie 
documentary about the May 1st 
Seabrook occupation and nuclear 
power will be presented 7:00 to 9:00 
Sunday night at the Pleasant Street 
Theatre in Northampton, Kriebel 

Dept. heads may leave union 

Department chairpersons will be 
asked this week if they wish to 
remain part of the faculty union, 
form their own union, or associate 
themselves with the administration, 
according to a spokesperson for the 
union representing UMass faculty. 

Prof. Larry S. Roberts, president 
of the Massachusetts Society of 
Professors (MSP) representing 
faculty in collective bargaining, said 
ballots will be mailed out this week 
to chairpersons at both the 
Amherst campus and the Boston 
campus, where faculty are 
represented by the Faculty Staff 

Both groups are affiliated with 
the Massachusetts Teacher's 

The election is a compromise 
between the 1400 faculty and the 
administration. The administration 
refused to recognize the existence 
of the union after faculty voted in 
the last February, saying they 
objected to the inclusion of 
department heads becuse they 
were employed on a managerial 

In order to begin negotiating a 
contract before a lengthy appeal 
process could be completed, which 

could have taken at least a year 
according to union members, the 
faculty agreed to a special election 
for chairpersons. 

The elction, however, is not 

The faculty union has filed a 
"technical" charge against the 
administration with the 

Massschusetts Labor Relations 
Commission on the grounds that 
UMass administrators are not 
bargaining in good faith. 

Union representatives say this is 
a means of getting the unit 

If the chairpersons choose to 
remain in the union, the MSP will 
proceed with the charges unless 
the administration agrees to 

If they vote themselves out, the 
results of the vote may be used by 
the commission in determining 
whether or not to modify the unit. 

Last week the commission held 
an informal hearing for faculty and 
administrators to determine if 
formal hearings should be held on 
the matter. The three com- 
missioners will not be able to 
determine that for a few weeks, an 

MLRC spokesperson said, due to 
their vacation schedules. 

If the faculty union supports the 
withdrawal of department heads 
from the unit, the former president 
of the Amherst chapter of the 
AmericanAssociation of University 
Professors (AAUP) says he will 
argue before the labor relations 
commission that the change is 
"arbitrary and capricious." 

Joseph S. Larson has said, he 
filed complaints against the union 
in June. The AAUP was defeated in 
a first-round vote last fall against 
the MSP and "no agent." 

Roberts said it will probably be 
the last week in August before the 
results are in on the department 
head election. He said the union 
sent the roughly 80 chairpersons 
the full text of the commissions 
original unit determination hearing 
and some explanatory material." 

"I would not exactly say it was a 
hard sell campaign," he said. 

Union and administration of- 
ficials are expected to meet today 
to continue "housekeeping" 
sessions before contract 
negotiating begins. Roberts said 
student participation in the sessions 
has yet to be discussed.

UMass received about $160,00 for 
playing before the cameras last 
year. Harvard is the team which P

O'Connell said. After it has covered

Buses to Belchertown 

The UMass transit service 
Monday night agreed to extend its 
Belchertown Center route to the 
Belchertown State Hospital, and to 
also consider altering the time 
schedule for fall semester. 

Stephen Murphy, acting director 
of the Student Senate Transit 
Service, said the additional costs 
would be around $100 to send the 
bus to Belchertown before 6:45 
a.m. as requested by some select- __ ^ 
men. Making the time change, ~*\

Special when 

AUGUST 3 1977 


There's an aspect to a college 
education at UMass that no one 
talks about very much, even at 
finals, because there's no credit 
involved, no professor and no 
specific class time, either. 

In spite of these shortcomings, 
some students spend as much as 
ten hours a week at it, and a dollar a 
day in "lab" fees, too. 

Talk to one of these students, 
any day up to 1 a.m. and you'll hear 
comments like, "I like playing 
pinball because I'm competing and 
winning against a machine," Paul 

"I play here every day of the 
week. It's something else to 
master," adds Hobbit. 

"I play out of frustration," says 
Donn. This is the only thing I do 
worse than school work. School 
work looks good after I've been 
town here with the machines." 

nost any time of day or night, 
the Campus Center and the 
basement of the Student Union 
reverberate to the clangs, rings and 
bands of Grand Slam, King Kool, 
Quic< Draw. Knock Out, Gun Fight, 
El Dorado and other exotically- 
named machines. Playing pinball is 
a form of recreation that you don't 
hear much talk about on campus, 
but it's a noisy sport that is played 
by both sexes and is readily 
available. You don't need special 
training, a partner, or any materials 
other than some change. 

As you pass by the machines, 
you'll notice a variety of people, 
though there are probably more 
males in their twenties than any 
other group. There might be one or 
two women playing. 

"The number of women playing 
on campus has definitely increased 
in the last year," one woman player 
told me. 

There were different responses 
to my question of why there aren't 
more women players. Donn felt 
that women had less money to 
spend. Hobbit said that she thought 
the myth was that playing pinball 
was a way for men to work off 
sexual frustration - so that 
stopped women from playing it. 

Some people meet regularly to 
play deep in the halls of the Student 
Union and the Campus Center. 
Others hesitate long enough for a 
game on their way to somewhere 

Most people I interviewed spent 
between $2 and $5 a week on 
games. They all had their favorite 
machines, those that are easy to 
win free games on, like Target 
Alpha, or games that are in good 
playing shape, like Spirit of 76. 

"Habit forming? Well, yea, like 
any other form of recreation," 
Kerry told me. Once you start losing 
you keep putting money in because

AUGUST 3, 1977 


The UMass intramural fields were 
filled last week with baton twirlers 
and flag-wavers when about 180 
high school girls spent long hours 
practicing the all-American form of 
burlesque, the marching arts. 

They were here to attend the 
New England Marching Band 
Conference, a training clinic for 
budding dancing queens, in- 
filtrating Central Area and the 
Campus Center with rifles, swords 
and bright standards. 

Under the guise of artistic en- 



five bounce' 

you want that chance to win, or if 
you're winning, you can't stop." 

Knotched on the tops of the 
machines are some of the pinball 
records. They cite names and dates 
like Jeb and Dave - 399,780, with 
a big star. 

When the Campus Center 
sponsored a pinball tournament in 
1975, that sparked a lot of interest. 
They set up five similar games, kept 
a mechanic on duty to see that the 
games were working, and to collect 
the scores. Bernard Wilkes 
assistant director of the Campus 
Center, told me that they were 
thinking about having another 
tournament sometime this year. 

Tri-Co Vending Co. from 

Easthampton handles the pinball 
machines and pays the C.C. about 
$35,000 a year in comissions. This 
money is put right back into run- 
ning the Campus Center. About 
once a month a new game is put in 
by Tri-Co. (at a cost of about $1,000 
to $1,200), and three games a 
month are rotated from other 
pinball locations. 

By state law, Wilkes told me, the 
machines are turned off at 1 a.m. 
and turned on again at 7 a.m. 
except for Sunday when they are 
turned on at 1 p.m. 

"There's almost always someone 
there finishing up a game, or 
waiting to start playing." 

So, head on down to the 

machines. For a few quarters you 

5 can be King Kool, get your Grand 

if Slam with no Hokus Pokus and get 

2 a good taste of the Wild Life. 



AUGUST 5, 1977 

is the deadline for 

reserving your advertising 

space in the Massachusetts Daily Collegian 


Don't miss your chance to reach 23,000 students upon their 
return to Amherst for fall semester. 

The Back to School issue will be a lenghty (84 96 pages) 
feature-oriented news magazine with emphasis on news, en- 
tertainment, arts, and lifestyle. 

Circulation will be 20,000 with a local open column inch rate of 
S3.00 per column inch. 

Unlike other area newspapers offering Back to School issues, 
the Daily Collegian's will be FREELY distributed on the UMass 
campus, in the town of Amherst, and at the four other colleges in 
the 5 College Area. In fact, the DAILY COLLEGIAN'S Back to 
School issue will reach more students more directly at one time 
than any other news publication in the valley. The COLLEGIAN'S 
Back to School issue will also prove quite informative to those N E W 
students unfamiliar with the goods and-or services your establish- 
ment offers the community. (UMass alone expects about 4,000 
entering freshmen.) 

So why not call a COLLEGIAN advertising representative at 
545 3500 before the reservation deadline expires this Friday It may 
be your last chance to get in on some of the most effective ad 
vertismg exposure any publication in the valley has to offer

provide suitable entertainment for 
national television in a few years. 

Our national floor show is no 
longer restricted to a darkened 
nightclub to protect the innocent, 
as is the French version. Our 
performances are given on sunny 
weekend afternoons in the fall at 
the local high school or college, and 
even broadcast into our homes. 

And of course American 
burlesque must be more splen- 
diferous than any other in the 
world. Half-time entertainment 
goes beyond the now-aging French 
routine of long leg kicks. The 
humorous caricatures and 
comedians of the European shows 
have been replaced by American 
culture — trooping conformity and 
flashy displays of force. 

Besides pride in the comeliness 
of our young girls, we parade our 
ability to fall into step, and our 

innate genius at arms. 

Two columns of two, perform a 
high step down the field, but 
without a Chaplin to sidle off in the 
other direction. This is a show not 
to be spoofed. 

The silks flap in figure eights 
overhead, and in front the damsels 
allure, prancing in 6-8 time. To the 
rear, behind even the "at ease" 
band, marches the gun slung rifle 
corps. Where is the poetry in 
"quarter arms, halt. Atten-h t"? 
Even the baton girls obey that 
command, as though their beauty 
were comparable to a refined, 
automated weapon that performs 
Its task unerringly. 

After a count of four, the riflery 
ensemble begins its visual 
serenade. The proficiency with 
which the corps tosses and aims its 
guns is fearful; the rifles twirl eight 
revolutions in the air and land 

aimed and ready to fire, back in 
their hands. 

Around the head to the right, 
around to the left, and then a long 
spin in front using only one hand, 
ending with a crack as the butts all 
land a quarter of an inch from each 
heel. To the fanfare of triumphant 
trumpets and drums, the company 
moves off as one, it's grotesque 
ballet over. 

Here in the artistic heart of 
Western Massachusetts practice 
and perform the sad products of 
American taste. National pride and 
collective impersonality trample 
classic art, the expression of the 
individual and his emotions. This is 
the same entertainment that is 
sanctioned in Red Square, Peking, 
where classic art is scorned and 
rejected. On the very doorstep of 
one of the state's main proponents 
of the arts, the arts are decaying

My only regret with Picnic, the 
latest production by the Mt. 
Holyoke College Summer Theatre 
is that by the time of this 
publication it will have passed on. 
The entire cast was outstanding in 
William Inge's drama of small town 
life in Kansas, Labor Day weekend, 

One reason for the play's success 
was casting. Jack Fahey played the 
boy-with-promise, with the keys to 
dad's Cadillac in his pocket and he 
was perfect right down to his penny 
loafers. Although the story is 
humorous, the role Fahey plays of 
Alan Seymour is pathetic; he's up 
against Hal Carter, an old college 
buddy who's drifted into town 
looking for work and excitment. 
Tom McCabe takes a while to move 
into this part, but once he does he's 
quite convincing as the talk of the 
town though I think that he is 
portrayed a lot more big and brain- 
less than Inge originally had intend- 

Kit Liset took on a different role 
from her performance last week in 
the Lion In Winter. She was Madge 
Owens, the midwestern belle who 
has captured the eye of every 
hoodlum, in town. Her frustrations 
arise from her beauty; like the 
sunset that some of the characters 
admire she is meant only to be 
looked upon and never touched. 
Hal Carter touches her and steals

her away from Seymour, her 
mother (played by Susan Daniels), 
and her Kansas backyard existence. 

At the other end of the scale, 
spinster school teacher Rosemary 
Sydney (Katie Budge) also escapes 
a life of loneliness and boredom 
when she convi n rps her middle- 
aged beau, He. I Evans (Phil 
Kilbourne) to marry her and take 
her away. 

The most enjo/able character in 
the play was Madge's bright little 
sister, Mille. A tomboy going on 
young lady, she was played 
cheerfully by Susan Daniels and 
managed to not only survive the 
despair that was tearing down the 
adult lives around her but to 
emerge fresh and triumphant at the 
end. "Boy," she tells all after the 
drifter has vanished into a passing 
freight train, "when I grow older 
I'm going to move to New York and 
write novels that are really gonna 
shock people!" 

Middle-aged Mrs. Potts, the 
neighbor lady who first hires Hal to 
help with the chores, was played 
effectively by Ellen Kennedy. 
Another amusing character was 
Bomber, the newspaper boy who 
glided on stage in his bike calling 
after Madge. Neil Musnate played 
the young yahoo very well. 

Speaking of yahoos, the 
Commonwealth Stage raised their 
curtain on campus last week at the 

Rand Theatre in the Fine Arts 
Center with a wild, zany romp 
through ancient Rome in A Funny 
Thing Happened On The Way To 
The Forum. 

A farce "freely adapted from the 
plays of Plautus", the Broadway hit 
comedy has been a favorite among 
audiences and performers alike for 
years now. It was the firct 
production of the Mt. Holyoke 
College Summer Theatre where it 
was well received and the audience 
here at UMass warmed up to it well 
in advance; the play's reputation 
arrived brfore it did and much of the 
humor lies in anticipating some of 
the standard gags and burlesque 

Haskell Gordon played a mar- 
velous Pseudolus, the would be 
hero of the story. His best scenes 
are when he acts solo. In working 
opposite Bob Lacroix, the love sick 
Roman adolescent Gordon bellows 
out his lines with great enthusiasm 
while Lacroix is somewhat un- 
convincing when he is barely 

Stanley Sayer was also difficult 
to hear in the musical numbers but 
this somewhat added to his role as 
the declining Senex. Nick Stan- 
nard, however, lost much of his 
gargantuan status when singing his 
narcisisstic lines describing his 
might and power. "I take large 
steps!" he warns, but the audience 
must strain to hear his threats. He is 

otherwise perfectly cast for the 
part; huge, bronze skinned and 
curly golden haired. 

Gary Deaton was a perfect 
Hysterium, the hysterical slave 
foreman. His singing and facial 
expressions were a plus to the 
entire production. Robert Verini 
played the Roman oil slick, Marcus 
Lycus, a procuror of women. There 
was plenty that could be done with 
this character but Verini played it 
straight and kept Lycus a minor 
character in the story. 

Susan Scherer was fine as Philia, 
the virgin courtesan who is the 
center of all the conniving. Francis 
Pichanick grabbed the laughs 
whenever he appeared as Erronius, 
an old man who Pseudolus has 
played tricks on. 

One of the finest singers in the 
cast, Justine Johnston only used 
her fine operatic voice once. The 
courtesans were all convincing in 
their parts but a short dance by the 
Geminae (Joanne Montgomery, 
Laurie Rothfeld) could use with 
some tighter timing and closer 

A number of the musical pieces 
and most especially the great 
climatic chase scene need to be 
stepped up and kept going despite 
a good rapport between the 
musicians and the actors. 

Jeff Fiala's scenery, derived from 
cartoonist Ronald Searle, is alone 
worth the ticket. With" a few nights

A few singles this week: 
Heartbreakers; Chinese Rocks; 
Track (import) — First release by 
ex-New York Dolls Johnny 
Thunder and Jerry Nolan. Good, 
but not up to Dolls greatness. 
Thunder's guitar is unmistakable 
(especially on the flip, "Born To 
Lose"), but David JoHansen's 
personality is much missed. Who 
said he couldn't sing? (PA) 

Iggy Pop And James Williamson; 
I GOT A RIGHT; Siamese - The 
Idiot is OK once you get used to it, 
but even so, one wishes Iggy were 
still with guitarist James 
Williamson, doing all-out rock 'n' 
roll. This outtake from Raw Power 
cuts 99 per cent of all other "punk" 
rock to shit. There's more in the can 
forthcoming, too. (PA) 

ROCKER; Sire - The best con- 
temporary real "punk" band 
continues to delve further into a 
pop sound. Their catchiest yet, very 
Beach Boys and Beatles influenced. 
This is what we should be able to 
turn up on our car radios, god- 
damit! Death to MOR! Stage a 
takeover of your local radio station 
now' (PA) 

The Vibrators; BABY BABY; Epic 
(import) — The first punk ballad. 
The Vibrators are the most com- 
mercial of the British new wave 
bands, as well as the most eclectic, 
musical and one of the most in- 
teresting. Their forthcoming LP 
should be a winner; in the mean- 
time, this single is among the best 
of he British stuff. (PM) 

Neglected classic of the week: 
The Trashmen; SURFIN' BIRD; 
Garrett — Done by a Minneapolis 
band who allegedly never surfed 
until long after this record hit. This 
is the real punk rock, played by 
bored kids with nothing to do but 
crash out a few primal chords. No 
politics, no hatred, no violence — 
just good rocknroll. It's on 1975s 
Go/den Summer surf , music

World of Disney 
not so wonderful

Reviewed by Mary Brown 

Bob Thomas, for many years a reporter for the 
Associated Press, has done a credible, but not im- 
pressive, job in his biography of Walt Disney. 

Thomas has successfully found out many scenes of 
Disney's life which give the book its substance. It 
does not, however, rise much above the level of 
straight reporting. 

The chronological biography begins where most 
chronological biographies do - the oldest ancestors 
traceable. In this case it was Hugh d'lsigny and his 
son Robert who sailed from Normandy to England 
sometime in the 11th century.

Walt Disney's first cartoon, published in 
1917 in the McKinley High School (in 
Chicago) Voice. 

Briefly, Thomas highlights the family tree before 
embarking on his major task of re-creating Disney's 
life — his boyhood in Marceline, Missouri; high school 
in Chicago; his first animation studio in Hollywood; 
Mickey Mouse; The Wonderful World of Color; 
financing the dying California Arts Institute, known as 
CalArts; Disneyland; Disneyworld; and the City of 

The chronological format, however, forces Thomas 
to skim lightly over what are, perhaps, the most 
fascinating years - when Walt was launching Disney 
World, or, "the Florida project." 

The plans for the City of Tomorrow, or EPCOT as it 
was called (experimental prototype of the city of 
tomorrow), is also glossed over. Yet it is probably 
Disney's most concrete contribution to America. 

Thomas presents Disney as if he were a character 
from one of Disney's own films. 

From his days as a "tow-headed" boy in Marceline, 
to his successful creation of Disneyworld, his life 
seems to contain the element of fantasy found in 
many Disney productions. 

He used to ride the pigs around his father's farm in 
Marceline, and became best friends to "Uncle Ed," 
"considered dim-witted by outsiders but considered 
by the family as boy who never grew up." 

Thomas writes in the foreward that Disney's 
creations were "a natural progressions, changing the 
audience from spectators to participants." 

Unfortunately, Thomas is heavy on the "spectator" 
segments of his life, and light on his later years. 

But the biography is worth reading, especially for 
those of us who grew up with The Wonderful World 
of Color on Sunday nights, Disney cartoons on 
Saturday morning TV and feature length films at the 
matinee — or even for those lucky ones who have 
visited Disneyland or Disneyworld. 

At least readers will know that life for Disney has 
not been a fairy tale. He put together the first Mickey 
Mouse cartoon "Plane Crazy" in his garage with 
longtime friend Ub Iwerks; found he couldn't sell the 
first animated cartoon with sound, "Steamboat 
Willie" also with Mickey Mouse; brought his company 
to the verge of financial ruin several times, managing 
to bring it into the black finally with his weekly TV 
show in the 1950's; his audio-animated President 
Lincoln for the 1964 World's Fair almost didn't work... 

Johnny and the Jukes 
belt out a class act 


No doubt about it, Southside 
Johnny is a class act, and his band 
he Asbury Jukes, aren't bad either' 
It was a great show they put on at 
the Lenox Music Inn on Friday 
night, despite the absence of the 

%VL V . sp,d 1 erish s 'nger Ronnie 
Spector, who had been billed with 
the Jukes. 

His vested-suit band (Johnny 
appeared in cream pink), his 
perverted swivel hipped drummer 
and occasional singer Popeye and 
Southside himself can all belt out 
some fine quality rock, like "I Don't 
Want To Go Home" and many 
other fine tunes I don't know the 
names of. I never listened to any of 
their albums, but come next payday 
I'm heading to my favorite music 
store to buy some. 

The Music Inn is an excellent 
place to listen to, and particularly 
see, music being played. The 
crowds are smaller, and the volume 
isn't what it could be. Due to 
grouchy neighbors complaining, 
the Music Inn has been forced to 
cut back on its advertising in the 
name of community relations, but 
you can sit right up next to the 
stage and even stand up and swing 
and sway a bit if the music makes 

Last year you would have risked 
being pelted by ice cubes from fans 
whose vision you were blocking. 

Duke and the Drivers also gave a 
short, but very good performance 
Friday night. 

On Saturday night, the only song 
that really appealed to me at the 
Jimmy Buffet concert was 
"Margaritaville". Unlike the rest of 
the crowd, I'm not a Jimmy Buffet 
True Believer. 

"Let's Screw", his sex song, sent 
his audience into orgasm, but only 
gave me a tingle. 

I never listened to any of Southside Johnny's 
albums, but come next payday I'm heading to my 
favorite music store to buy some". 

Morgans come home 
for 35th annual show 


Jim Paulin 

Nancy Bernetich 


The Northampton Tri-County 
Fair Grounds was the site for the 
35th Annual New England Morgan 
Horse Show last week. Although 
the event has not always been held 
in Northampton, it is fitting for the 
show, which attracts competitors 
from around the nation, to be held 
in this area since the Morgan horse 
had its origins here. 

In 1879, Justin Morgan, a school- 
teacher, left Springfield to try for 
better fortune in Vermont with a 
small rough-coated coit named 
"Figure". The colt was 
predominantly Thoroughbred and 
Arabian. Though Figure's size was 
small, he slowly gained a statewide 
reputation for his stamina and 
strength. Figure, who is now 
known as Justin Morgan in honor 
of his owner, became the 
progenitor of the United States' 
oldest breed of light horse. The 
Morgans were not only bred as 
workhorses, but for their speed and 
beauty as well. 

Present day Morgans differ 
remarkably from their ancestors. 
Selection has been made in order to 
adapt the breed to modern usage. 
Originally, the breed's major use 
was as a harness horse; now it's 
under saddle. Morgans do much of 
the range work from the Rocky 
Mountains of Montana to the Plains 
of New Mexico. The breed is 
especially well designed as a 
cowhorse in that they live long, 
work hard, and are quick to learn. 
Morgans are filling the showrings 
of the natioh competing in classes 
which stress their many range of 
uses. The horse can compete as a 
roadster, a stock horse, a pleasure 
horse, or as a harness horse. 

At the Northampton show, the 
best of the breed could be seen. 
Seven hundred and one horses are 
entered in 149 classes. The com- 
petition was keen and the com- 
petitive spirit was high. The show 
was the largest and the best of its 
kind in the country.

two dollars per student for 
each week they are enrolled in 
summer school. The funds, 
which will amount to an 
estimated $40,000 this sum 
mer, are then channeled into

Son >■ events do have their 
curious aspects, though. So a few 
heat crazed speculations and 
questions follow 

— New York City - u' was 
quite a spectacle Mo o ie knows 
how it happened. Some observers 
call it an act of God while others 
claim it was a ConEd power trip. 
But who stands to lose most in 
such a dispute? 

a) God. because he lost his 
reputation for omnipotence (ConEd 
got the power back on). 

b) ConEd, because it now has 
Bella Abzug on its back. 

— What should be done with the 
looters who ran wild in the dark? 

a) Since the poor ghetto 
inhabitants are shaped entirely by 
their wretched environment, they 
shouldn't be held responsible. 

b) Saudi Arabian surgeons 
should be brought in. 

c) ConEd should leave the lights 

— Is it true that NYPD's success 
in preventing a full scale riot was 
due to a secret weapon believed to 
be the complement of the neutron 
bomb? How else can they account 
for the fact that the buildings were 
destroyed but the people left 

— And speaking of things that 
don't leave people standjng. Son of 
Sam murdered again last week. 
While I don't want to belabor the 
macabre, his case is interesting, 
and suggests a few odd questions. 

Who is Sam? Does he have 
cousins? Is there a whole Samson 
family? What does Jimmy Breslin 
really know? Do his initials indicate 
that he wants help? Is there truth to 
the rumor that Collegian's own Joe 
Quinlan has packed his toothbrush 
and pencil to go and find out what 
Son of Sam is saving the last bullet

Dear Conferees: Get the fuck out of here. That's 
right, you heard me the first time. Go home. We 
don't need you. And we're going to take those 
Campus Center hotel rooms which are worthless to 
students, pulverize them and run the filthy things 
which you contaminated, through UMass' new 
wastewater treatment plant. 

And don't forget to take your pointer sticks and 
blackboards with you, you bunch of miserable 
doubleknit and leisure suited bastards. 

And the same goes to the Director of Con- 
ventioneer Kissers, Fuddlydumbduddlee Culvert and 
his blue pet mutt, a story in itself: 

Fuddlydumbduddlee has a pet mongrel he calls 
Pig. Pig has rabies. Pig is an escapee from the dog 
officer in a small town near here, and in these small 
towns they have small municipal budgets. So, as is 
the case here, a police officer doubles as a dog 

Well, Pig was so vicious that the dog officer 
decided he should destroy it. But when he tried, Pig 
emasculated the officer with one fell bite, and 
proceeded to steal the officer's uniform which he 
decorated with a swastika armband. You see, Pig's 
father was a German shepard stormtrooper and 
dedicated Nazi even years after the end of the war 
(Pig himself is half German Shepard and half French 
poodle begat when his father raped the poodle. 

Afterwards. Piq roamed the UMass campus and 

streets of Amherst biting people in the ass whom he 
found asleep in public places. Early one evening, he 
found Fuddlydumbduddlee passed out in Amherst 
center, and was about to bid FuddyDumbduddlee's 
plump ass when he noticed that Culvert, although 
human, had the same canine odor as himself. So 
instead of biting Culvert's ass, he licked it, and they 
immediately became fast friends. 

Fuddlydumbduddlee got Pig a shit job in the 
Campus Center, where he was employed, but for a 
month it didn't work. Then, Fuddlydumbduddlee 
being a man with pull on campus, got Pig a job with 
campus security, Pig's most impressive 
qualifications being razor sharp teeth. 

Pig now occupies himself by licking the hands of 
conferees and biting the asses of sleeping students, 
stinking the place up and being a general pain in the 

Of course, Pig isn't really necessary, as Fud- 
dlydumbduddlee is more than willing to bite ass 
himself, but what the hell, there's nothing like a man 
and his dog. 

Item: According to M.C. (Mike) Kostek, owner of 
Sun Records in Amherst, a group of Japanese 
tourists seeing a sign at the record store advertising a 
record by the British punk rock band, The Sex 
Pistols, asked him if he had any real sex pistols. 

He should have directed them to a sperm bank.

Student government trip 

The 12-day trip to Houston, 
Texas that 15 UMass student 
government officials begin 
tomorrow is a "potential 
moneymaker", according to 
Student Senate Speaker Brian 
DeLima, who heads the trip. 

DeLima, Monday said the UMass 
student government was requested 
by the National Student 
Association (NSA) earlier this 
summer to run 25 of the 50 work- 
shops at the annual student 
government conference. 

The UMass Student Government 
Association (SGA), DeLima said, 
could possibly attract a grant from 
a national corporation for its 
"noteworthy student services" 
which will be displayed in 25 work- 
shops at the NSA conference. 

NSA is paying a large portion of 
the costs for the trip, DeLima said. 
Conference fees are also being 
waived. The trip will cost the SGA 
less than $2,000, he said, but 
without the financial breaks for 
conducting the workshops, ex- 
penses would kx close to $7,500. 

DeLima said other university 
student governments have 
requested advict om UMass for 
implementing seme of the various 
student services < ffered at UMass. 

"UMass has a large delivery 
system,;,' DeLima said, "We are 
innovators in student government." 

DeLima denied he may run for an 
executive office in the NSA con- 
ference elections, but did say Henry 

Doyle, of the Campus Center Board 
of Governors, may run for NSA vice 
president. DeLima said the vice 
president's job would involve 
travelling, recruiting and consulting 
at schools nationwide. Doyle was 
unavailable for comment. 

DeLima said he also doubts the 
trip will be a "junket." The UMass 
schedule, he said, includes running 
25 of the workshops in a five day 
period, plus six days travelling in 
two vans and a car. 

Pot Legislation 
An initiative petition to de 
criminalize marijuana has been filed 
in the Massachusetts General Court 
by UMass students. 

The petition signed by SGA co- 
President Jon A. Hite and former 
SGA co-President Paul M. Cronin, 
among others, would institute a $50 
fine for possession of less than an 
ounce of marijuana. Fifty-eight 
thousand more signatures must be 
collected by Sept. 7 in order for the 
State House of Representative to 
vote on the proposal. 

If the House defeats the petition, 
it can be placed on the November 
1978 election ballot if 13,000 more 
signatures can be collected. 

"The students have to help," 
Hite said, adding they did not 
organize the petition as SGA of- 

"It's one issue students should 

be supportive," he said 

Grad Noise 

Evening rainstorms last week 

postponed one more noise testing 

at the Graduate Research Center 

(GRC) towers until this week. 

Alan Graichen, of the Lower 
Pioneer Valley Air Pollution Control 
District, Monday said that 
assuming a noise level violation 
existed, his office would notify the 
University, the state Bureau of 
Building Construction and the legal 
department of his office for en- 
forcement of noise regulations. 

Residents living along Fairview 
Ave., 100 yards from the GRC, first 
complained of excessive throbbing 
noise from the tower in early June. 

Since then, two conflicting noise 
tests have been conducted. This 
week's test involves a complete 
shutdown of GRC machinery. 

O'Neill at UMass 

Lt. Gov. Thomas P. O'Neill 
Tuesday morning will ride the 
UMass bus system and tour the 
Orchard Hill solar house, according 
io Peter Broer, O'Neill's press aide. 

O'Neill has postponed this trip 
since June 15, when he had 
originally planned to stop here as 
part of a two-day Western Massa- 
chusetts visit. 

O'Neill Tuesday morning will 
board the 8:34 Belchertown Rd. 
inbound bus to the Stockbridge Rd. 
stop across from the Newman 
Center. From there O'Neill will tour 
the Solar Habitat One before 
leaving for Geriatrics Authority of 
Holyoke. Broer said O'Neill will also

Bromery talks about his job 

Editor's Note: Chancellor 
Randolph W. Bromery was in- 
terviewed Monday for both the 
Summer Collegian and the 
Collegian Back to School issue. A 
more complete account of the 
interview will appear in the Back to 
School issue August 31. 

Chancellor Randolph W. 
Bromery says he feels he shouldn't 
be considered for the job of 
University president unless he is 
asked by the Board of Trustees. 

"An internal candidate at my 
level almost has to be invited by the 
board of trustees" to apply for the 
post, Bromery said in an interview 
Monday. The current president, 
Robert C. Wood, announced his 
resignation in June effective 
January 1. 

Bromery said depending on how 
the trustee search committee 
defines the presidency, he may 
agree to be considered for the job. 
He said many questions remain to 
be answered on the role of the 
president, the location of the 
president's office and the 
relationship to the board of 

"One thing people have 
forgotten about but have to 
consider is what happens to the 
president of UMass if the legislature 
enacts a reorganization plan for 
public higher education," Bromery 

The search process, he says, can 
reaffirm the presidency as Wood 
has conducted it or redefine it, with 
ihe job description determining in a 
large measure who the final can- 
didate will be. The search will be 
conducted by five members of the 
board of trustees, two students, 
ihree faculty and one at-large 
member, probably a former trustee. 

The committee will define what 
the office is going to be, Bromery 
said, but the legislature will define 
how it will relate to public higher 

"My style of administration is 
different from President Wood's 
style; he knows that," Bromery 

"I'm primarily a line ad- 
ministrator, I like line respon- 
sibility," he said. 

Bromery is the type of ad- 
ministrator who doesn't mind being 
"on call" 24 hours a day. When 
Bromery talks about being the only 

administrator who lives on campus, 
he says that if a whistle blows at 2 
a.m. he gets up to turn on the 
police radio in case it's something 

"I'd feel a loss without faculty, 
students and all the other tur- 
moil ... that goes with the job," he 

"I don't know if I would like to be 
detached from a campus," he said, 
adding it would be ideal for him to 
remain at Amherst if he became 

He said a lot of people have 
forgotten that a committee of 
students, faculty and ad- 
ministrators were the ones who 
originally recommended the 
president's office not be located on 
any one of the three UMass 

Bromery said another subject he 
would have to consider before 
accepting the position of president 
is the transition of the Board of 
Trustees in the past few years. 

The new trustees, who now 
make up a majority of the board, 
have to go through a learning 
process, he said. They have to learn 
not to make day-to-day 
management decisions, Bromery 
said, instead learning to set policy. 

A good example of this, he said, 
was the board's discussion about 
athletic tuition waivers, which 
"look much too much of the 
trustees time." 

In their dialogue on this subject, 
ihey were "almost acting like a 
watchdog for some other govern- 
mental agency," he said. 

Bromery said he was "con- 
cerned" about the remarks of the 
new trustee, Haskell Kassler, a 
Brookline attorney, at the last 
irustee meeting July 28 in Wor- 

"It wasn't important what he 
said," in his remarks against the 
trustees' June decision to approve 
120 athletic tuition waivers, but the 
lone of what he said indicated "a 
pervasive lack of respect for senior 
University administrators." 

If Kassler's remarks are a sign of 
what is to come, he said, "the 
irustees and administrators are in 
for difficult days. Senior ad- 
ministrators have other options." 
The new and old trustees are in a 
period of transition, Bromery said, 
and they must learn to act as the 
Board of Trustees of the University.

President Wood's style; he knows that. I'm 
primarily a line administrator, I like line

Demers named 
RSO coordinator 


Armand H. "Bud" Demers, Jr. 
has been appointed Recognized 
Student Organization (RSO) 
coordinator by Vice Chancellor for 
Student Affairs Robert L. 
Woodbury, who disclosed the 
choice Monday night in a telephone 

The appointment of Demers, 
who had been serving in the same 
position on an acting basis, came 
after a student dominated search 
committee recently recommended 
him to Woodbury. Several can- 
didates, some not associated with 
the University, were interviewed on 
campus by the search committee 
earlier this summer. 

Woodbury Monday night said he 
is "very pleased" with the search 
committee's choice. 

"I'm immensely pleased he's 
taking the job permanently," said 

Demers Monday night said as the 
RSO coordinator he will be 
"straddling the fence" between the 
administration and students. The 
administration, Demers explained, 
will look to him to fill an ad- 
ministrative role, while students will 
look for student-oriented actions by 

Demers said he first became 
involved with student related 
activities in 1967 when he was hired 
at UMass as the RSO supervisor of 
accounts; a job, he said, similar to a 
RSO business manager. 

Woodbury also said he viewed 
Demers' job as a "middle man 
role." "He is a major person in 
terms of the administration of a 
variety of student activities," 

Woodbury said, "and as a member 
of the administration he is a major 
part of the University." 

"He has a tough job, trying to 
satisfy two different audiences," 
Woodbury said. 

Dean of Students William F. 
Field, who Woodbury said is 
continually working with the RSO 
coordinator, also expressed 
satisfaction with Demers' ap- 

"I'm really pleased with the 
appointment," said Field Monday 
night. "The search committee did a 
good job," Field said, noting a 
thorough screening of several good 
candidates was conducted by the 
search committee. 

The job of RSO coordinator has 
been filled on an interim basis for 
several years. Field said, adding 
there are probably very few 
students on campus now who can 
recall the last permanent coor- 

Demers, Field said, "has a deep* 
understanding" of campus ac- 

Field said Demers' job is "not a 
static role," but Field added, 
Demers is "creative." 

"He has the skills and talent to do 
it," Field said, "I trust him." 

Other "inside" candidates, those 
currently employed by UMass, in- 
cluded: James P. Riley, acting 
assistant coordinator of student 
activities; Bill Hasson, acting 
program coordinator for RSO; and 
Michael Pill, co-chair of the 
Campus Center Board of Govern- 

The search committee was 
chaired by Steve Goldberg. 

"We cannot continue to run the 
University on nine to eight or 12 to 
11 votes of the trustees," he said, 
or the different constituencies on 
the campuses will constantly be 
lobbying for a change. 

While Bromery said he expects 
marginal votes will disappear, he 
said he will not implement a June 
vote approving athletic tuition 
waivers, which passed by a nine to 
eight margin. 

At the July meeting, the trustees 
voted to reconsider the original 
vote, but the way it was called to a 
vote was improper according to 
Robert's Rules of Order. Only 
someone who voted in favor of the 
waivers in June could ask for a 
reconsideration, but trustee 
Chairperson Joseph P. Healy 
allowed Secretary of Educational 
Affairs Paul Parks ask. Parks did 
not vote in June. 

The question was referred to 
legal counsel, but most observers 
say the vote will be ruled out of 
order, leaving the June vote 
standing. Many trustees objected 
to the athletic waivers being passed 
since the complete tuition waiver 
package will be coming up for 
irustee review in September. 

"I'd hate to implement the 
waivers on a technical reversal," 
Bromery said, "Unless I receive 

something from the president, I 
won't give them out." 

Bromery said 66 Massachusetts 
athletes have already been ap- 
proved for waivers, but now the 
money will have to come out of the 
Barber fund for athletic scholar- 

The Athletic Dept. was hoping to 
use the waivers to supplement the 
Barber fund, thus providing more 
learns with some scholarships or 
waivers. As of last year, only four 
teams were eligible for scholarship 
money — football, men's 
basketball, women's basketball and 
women's gymnastics, with the 
largest chunk of money going to 
the football squad. 

Bromery said the University, with 
the help of the waivers, wanted to 
open up more scholarship money to 
women athletes. 

He said the waivers would have 
freed $50,000 in the Barber fund to 
give to other sports. 

Bromery said he is also con- 
cerned with the way the 
presidential search process will .be 
received by the campus. 

"There's a lot of people on this 
campus that are sitting around here 
now, and the trustees are sitting 
down there 96 miles away, 
designing what kind of presidertt 
we're going to have," he said. 

Once the trustees give the 
campus community a president 
ihat they've determined, "the 
campus community will go beat on 
ihe irustees." 

What most of the campus 
community doesn't realize, he said 
is ihe trustees are unpaid. A lot or 
people are going to complain about 
ihe presidential search later on, he 
said, but "if you're really going to 
be concerned about the future of 
ihe University, then you're going to 
have to be concerned every day, 
every week, every year. 

He said he also thinks the search 
process, as it is run how, has a 
lendency to lose good candidates 
He said he can get qualified can- 
didates and still 'ulfill affirmative 
action by making a few phone calls, 
instead of spending time and 
money advertising, which will 
enable many underqualified 
candidates io apply. Half of the 
search committee's budget will be 
spent saying no to these people, he

Vice chance/for McBee 
settles into new position 

AUGUST 10, 1977 


The new vice chancellor for administration and 
finance is working 16 hou/s daily, seven days a week 
learning about the UMass campus, its personnel, 
budget and problems. 

"Oh yeah, it'll slow down," said James L. McBee, 
who left a position as executive officer to the 
president of Illinois State University to come to 

McBee, who accepted the vice chancellorship July 
1 , said the past month has been extremely busy since 
the fiscal 1978 budget allocations had to be drawn up 
and fiscal 1979 budgetary proposals also requested. 

He says he hasn't really formed too many im- 
pressions of the campus yet since most of his time has 
been spent getting a handle on his job. 

And McBee's job is no small one. 

James L. McBee, new vice chancellor 
for administration and finance 

In his post as head of administration and finance, a 
newly created position, he is in charge of the Physical 
Plant, transportation and parking, the dining com- 
mons, the Campus Center payroll and accounting, 
labor relations, the office of grants and contracts and 
business and financial management procedures. 

"The most important thing is to get familiar with all 
areas with which I have responsibility," he said in a 
recent interview. He said his is primarily concerned 
with getting to know the people he has to work with. 

McBee, whose academic field is animal and food 
science, says his day begins at 7:30 a.m. Reading 
briefing papers, phone calls and getting to know staff 
take up much of his time. 

"I think it's not uncommon for someone with an 
agricultural background to end up in academic ad- 
ministration. A large part of being a successful ad- 
ministrator is having common sense and the ability to 
work with people and the ability to make decisions " 
he says. 

Academic administrators are drawn from many 
different fields, he says. 

McBee says he made the decision a long time ago 
to become an administrator. 

After earning his Ph.D. at West Virginia University 
in 1959, McBee joined the staff as an assistant 
professor. He then was selected to head the animal 
science program at Illinois State University in 1970 
and was asked to become executive officer to the 
president there in 1975. He is also a captain in the 
Naval Reserve. 

While McBee has no plans for' teaching a course 
this fall, he says he would like to find the time once he 
settles into his new job. 

While heading up the animal science program at 
Illinois, he said he taught one to three courses per 

"I like teaching," says McBee, who won an award 
as a distinguished teacher while at West Virginia. 

Faculty, students hear 
collective bargaining talks 

About 30 students, faculty and others connected 
with faculty collective bargaining associations 
gathered in the basement of the Campus Center 
Friday to hear four talks on faculty collective 
bargaining in Ireland, Canada, the United States and 
in Massachusetts. 

The day-long conference was sponsored by the 
UMass Center for Educational Management Studies 
headed by Budget Director Warren W. Gulko. 

Richard O'Neill, a consultant for higher education 
with the Massachusetts Teachers Association (MTA) 
to which the UMass faculty union is affiliated, told the 
group that the loss of public trust in universities and 
the rapid growth in public -higher education in- 
stitutions which necessitated the rapid growth in 
management, combined to form the basis for the 
growth of the faculty union movement in the U.S. 

The MTA represents the majority of the public 
higher education teachers in Massachusetts. 

O'Neill said the defeat of the Harrington bill which 
would have a reorganized public higher education into 
one system under UMass President Robert C. Wood 
was "a major victory" of faculty unioninism in the 

O'Neill, who spoke on "Collective Bargaining - The 
Faculty Perspective" said faculty are still "paranoid" 
about the acquisition of power, and usually do not 
want students at the bargaining table. 

At Fitchburg State in 1973, "the faculty union 
brought students to the table to use them, but the 
faculty quickly found out students had their own 
ideas," he said. 

O'Neill also said that students don't have the 
sophisticated knowledge of "at the table technique", 
and that students hiring a professional to sit at the 
table for them is a "taboo". 

Tim Bornstein, a professor of law and industrial 
relations at UMass, said there are many myths about 
collective bargaining which need to be uncovered for 

Collective bargaining s "a practical, conservative" 
institution that will not fundamentally alter the role of 
the administration, upgrade an individual's academic 
standing or achieve democratization. But it will follow 
the industrial model of bargaining, since "the reality is 
there is only one model, he said. 

Bornstein said, "Some students are smart enough 
to perceive that anything that the faculty win in 
collective bargaining will be at their expense," so 
faculty collective bargaining has an "energizing" 
effect on students who will learn from example and 
form iheir own unions. 

Aidan Duggan, director of Personnel Services at 
the University of Dublin and presently on sabbatical 
leave to UMass. also spoke along with Daniel A. 
Soberman, mediator of a semester-long strike at Laval 
University in Canada during the fall of 1976.

Nursing division recovers 
after long spell of illness 


For Ruth A. Smith, the newly-appointed acting director of the Division of Nursing, the upcoming academic year 
will be "an exciting time" as she works to rebuild a program which in 1976 suffered from over-enrollments and 
lack of adequate staffing. 

About 10 new faculty will have been hired by September, Smith said in a recent interview, and combined with a 
large graduating class last year, the nursing program is in the best shape its been in for a number of years. 

In January of 1976, the problem of excessive enrollment was so acute that the administration decided to cut 
present enrollment by half. Students in the nursing program asked the University to sign a statement agreeing 
that the University has a "contract" with students to provide them with a quality education. 

When the administration refused to sign, nurses began a 24 hour "candlelight" vigil at the Whitmore ad- 
ministration building, which ended when the University agreed not to cutback on enrollments. 

Smith said the division of nursing, a unit within the bcnool ot Health Sciences, has "paid tne price" of over- 
enrollment "with angry and hostile students," but she's quick to add that "they are marvelous for working, out 

The problems in 1976 had effects on faculty too. About eight faculty resigned, including Director Ira D. Trail. 
But the faculty who have stayed, Smith said, are committed to re-building the program and making everv effort 
to help her. 

Both faculty and student morale

is in "a healthy state", she said, 
"I've had several faculty members 
helping me plan for the fall" 
something which is not required of 

For the fall, Smith said, the 
division will continue its 
cooperation with the UMass 
Worcester teaching hospital with 
fourteen seniors taking a com- 
prehensive nursing course there. 

Last year, she said, students 
were bused to Worcester for a 
pathology course, but due to the 
difficulty of the course which had 
to be taught on a day when 
students also had to do clinical 
work, the course will be taught at 
the Amherst campus this year. 

Smith said she would like to see 
more opportunity for faculty to im- 
prove their training, with the goal of 
being able to reach at both the 
graduate and undergraduate level. 

The graduate program has 
shrunk in the past two years, and 
one of Smith's goals is to enlarge 
the graduate program while keep- 
ing the undergraduate program 
small in order to be able to ex- 
periment with new methods of 
teaching nursing. 

Smith herself is a graduate 
student, but at the University of 
Connecticut School of Education. 
She's a Ph. candidate in 
professional higher education 
administration and has recently 
returned from a lea^« nf absence to 
prepare her doctoral dissertation. 

Another goal Smith is working 
toward is the development of 
cooperation between Worcester 
and Amherst. Currently, only one 
course is being taught there, but 
Smith hopes for more exchange for 
both students and faculty. 

Becduse University hospitals 
tend to provide complex care, it is a 
unique opportunity for nursing 
students to have access to such a 

Smith said she would like to see 
facilities made available for 
students to stay overnight. 

A "Blue Ribbon" committee, 
investigating the possibility of a 
move to Worcester for the nursing 
division, recommended it stay on 
the Amherst campus, where 
students could participate in a 
broad-based liberal arts education 
before finishing up their nursing 
program in their junior and senior 

The program, which was 
originated in 1953 by Mary Maher, 
now dean emeritus, went from the 
status of a school to that of a 
division within the School of Health 
Sciences in 1973. 

"There is a hope we'll return to 
school status," she said, but 
although its been discussed, there 
has been no formal action taken 
about bringing the matter to the 
Faculty Senate. 

Meanwhile, Smith said, there 
may be hope of loosening up the 
tight admissions of the nursing 
program in the spring. 

Smith said that 33 seniors will be 
graduating in December, and 
"we're hoping to admit a limited 
number of students into a 
sophomore nursing course in the 

Students must have a 2.5 
cumulative average and at least a C 
in all pre-requisite courses to be 
considered for the nursing 
program, but even then it doesn't 
assure them of being admitted, she 

"When you are doing something 
interesting and challenging," Smith 
said, "morale goes up" and if 
preliminary indications are correct, 
students 'and faculty alike should 
have a higher morale this year than 
in the past few.

DH. Back in the olden days, 
those could have been the initials 
for an insult, deadhead, etc., or a 
reasonable facimile. 

In a sporting sense, DH is the ab- 
breviation on scoreboards for 
i designated hitter (it stems from the 
fact that scoreboards are too 
short). Fans seem to forget the 
National League has no such thing 
as a position called designated 
hitter (maybe everyone in the NL 
can hit). 

Ah, DH could stand for 

You remember doubleheaders? 
The little ol' schedule-maker's 
solution to rained out games, and a 
true baseball fan's dream. 

Be it a solution or a dream, what 
psychic powers are expelled from 
this double dose of baseball? Why 
are double headers seemingly 
always split and never swept? 

While there's nothing mysterious 
about a day game or even a night 
game Ccepting at Wrigley Field in 
Chicago), it appears the DH game 
has the strength of a positive- 
charged atom meeting up with a 
negative-charged one. In non-plain 
English, a neutral power. 
No one team owns a two-gamer. 
Theoretical question: The Red 
Sox will play 10 doubleheaders next 
season — What would their record 
be in those games? 

They'd probably win one, lose 
one, and split the other eight. 

See, it doesn't matter what team 
they're playing, that's the way DH's 

I wouldn't be surprised if the 
following conversation could take 
place when the two opposing 
managers meet at home plate prior 
to the opening game of the twin- 

"Hey, you're looking good there, 
Don (Zimmer)" remarks his 'old 
friend' Billy Martin. "Lost a couple 
pounds haven't you?" 

"Two or three pounds. I'm 
cutting down on the beer after 

losses" replies Zimmer. "What's 
new up there in the Big Apple?" 
"Oh, nothing new. Muggings, 
rapes, inflation, unemployment, 
and my job's on the wire; you 
know, the usual stuff" adds Martin. 
"So how you want to work this 
thing tonight, Don?" 


"It's a deal." 

Game one, Sox win 5-3 with two 
runs in the ninth. Game two, 
Yankees slaughter Sox, 11-2. 

As you with college educations 
behind can figure out, a split 
doesn't usually bolster your place in 

"Well, I thought it'd be nice if we 
(Red Sox) won the opening game 
this time. Fergy is pitching and 
needs to get his record up some. 
Plus I know a lot of fans personally 
who are here tonight and can't 
hang around for the late game 
because they have to work 
tomorrow" explains Zimmer. 

"Sounds good to me Zimm. I'll 
go along with it if the first game can 
be kept close, and you let us rout 
you in game two so Reggie and the 
boys won't be so down" states 

the standings. But maybe won't 
hurt either, because all the other 
teams are splitting doubleheaders 
too (just hope the first place team 
isn't playing only one game). 

Actually I guess the 
doubleheaders aren't so bad an 
idea, even if most of 'em are split. 
Look at it this way: You could go 
see your favorite two teams play 
each other, and come away happy, 
each of them having won a game. 

Wonder why there aren't any

quality, dynamic level, and pitch. A 
short sight-reading test will also be 

The Chorale, under the direction 
of Dr. Richard du Bois, performs on 
campus and in the Western Massa- 
chusetts area. In past years, the 
group has toured the U.S. and 
Europe extensively giving concerts 
in churches, civic auditoriums, high 
schools and other college cam- 

The Chorale has also appeared 
with the Boston Philharmonic and 
the Springfield Symphony, last year 
performing the Berlioz "Requiem" 
with Springfield. The group also 
performed the "Requiem" in a 
combined effort with other area 
colleges last year, in a performance 
in Lincoln Center, New York City. 

The Chorale has toured Europe in 
1972 and 1974, and in 1976, the 
group performed in Rumania. 

it year should be of special 
interest to anyone wanting to join 
Chorale. A two week tour of Europe 

includinq London, Paris, Austria 
and several of its cities, and several 
other stops have been planned for 
the first two weeks of summer of 
1978. Since funds must be raised to 
pay for the tour, fund-raising will be 
required by each member of the 
group to help pay for the tour. 

Chorale involves six hours of 
rehearsal time a week and asks 
members to dedicate and commit 
themselves to a total musical ex- 
perience, while making new friends 
with common goals. 

Students are asked to state their 
preference for either chorale and 
chorus when they audition.

If you're driving down Route 66, and your car breaks down, 
there's something you can do about it— cheap 


It's listed in the phone book as the ARC Garage, 

and has been at its present location on Rt. 66 in 

Northampton for a year, ever since it moved from the 

original location on Rt. 5. 

Offering nearly everything a garage can offer, the 

ARC is a coop which does general auto repair at 

reduced rates. Commercial work is done there as well. 
To become a member, all you do is pay an initial fee 

of $15 per year, or if you want, $5 for four months. 

The fee entitles you to garage space, use of the 
coop's tools and, if you aren't well-versed in the art of 
car repair, the assistance of the garage's mechanics. 
Garage space is $1.50 per hour and if you need a 
mechanic, that's an additional $10 per hour. 

The coop's staff are dedicated to the process of de- 
mystifying auto mechanics, especially for women. 

The coop staff say they believe that a hoax is 
perpetrated about automobile maintenance which 
clouds car mechanics in an "Ivory Tower" com- 

But cars can be repaired and maintained by anyone. 

A dark-haired young woman named Ellen, clad in 
blue jeans and a sweatshirt, hunted for a part to fix her 
Volkswagen's ignition points. 

Another woman coop member praised the 
mechanics at the garage. "They're very nice and 
helpful, and they show me how to do things. I'm 
getting a lot explained." 

One of the female mechanics working at the coop, 
a geology graduate from Smith College, scraped at a 

brake drum of a Toyota. With her gold earrings 
shining, through an otherwise greasy outfit, she said 
she originally came from a garage in Holyoke, where 
she "usually wound up wiping windows and pumping 

She said she came to the coop a year ago to see if 
she could work there as a mechanic, and has been 
there ever since. 

The owner of the Toyota said the coop mechanics 
were going to try to locate a used engine in local 
junkyards to replace the one now in the car. 

"A new one would cost me $300, and the coop is 
going to get me one for $75 to $100," she said. 

The coop took a while to get on its feet. When it 
started, the garage raised money by teaching classes 
in auto repair. They still do hold classes, but none this 
summer, although they probably will resume in the 

Bob Cosby, an independent tool salesman, has 
been servicing the coop since November of 1976. 

"It's quite an enterprise," he said, with "a variety of 
things going on." 

Oil changes, tune ups, wheel alignments or a 
change of brake shoes — all this can be done at the 
coop. Or, leave your auto there during the week, and 
they will charge commercial rate to fix it. 

The coop is open from 9 a.m. until late in the 
evening, with Fridays and Saturdays devoted to coop 
work. Sunday appointments are available. 

Although some auto parts are stocked, some may 
have to be ordered. A word of warning — they don't 
do body work, only because the garage, which can 
hold up to three cars, isn't equipped for it. 

The staff of the ARC coop garage is dedicated to the process of de 
mystifying auto mechanics, especially for women.

Alternative Energy Coalition 
launches 500 balloons to test 
strength of wind on fallout 

Nancy Bernetich 


MONTAGUE - Five hundred 
balloons drifted in a northeasterly 
direction toward New Hampshire 
Sunday from a proposed nuclear 
power plant site here after anti- 
nuclear power activists released 
them to demonstrate how far 
radiation fallout could travel by 

The balloon release, and part of a 
rally held Sunday afternoon on 
Montague Plains, where Northeast 
utilities wants to build a nuclear 
power plant, was part of a 
nationwide anti-nuclear power 
commemoration of the Hiroshima- 
Nagasaki atomic bombings of 1945 
which led to the end of World War 
II. The Alternative Energy 
Coalitions (AEC) of Hampshire and 
Franklin counties sponsored the 

Postcards, addressed to the 
Greenfield office of the AEC, were 
attached to the balloons to enable 
the group to determine how far the 
balloons floated. Space was 
available on the postcard for people 
to write where they found the 
balloon. The postcards did not in- 
clude pre-paid postage. 

"Because radiation and balloons 
travel by wind," AEC spokesperson 
Margaret Davenport said, "the 
balloons will be visible evidence of 
where invisible radiation could 
come down." 

The AEC also held daytime vigils 
in Amherst, Northampton, and 
Greenfield and showed anti-nuclear 
power documentary films at a 
Northampton theater. A candlelight 
vigil was held last night on the 
Amherst Common and at the 
Unitarian Church in Northampton 
from 9 p.m. to 10 p.m. 

The balloons drifted toward the 

Connecticut River, where 30,000 
gallons of water per minute would 
be diverted for cooling the reactors 
for the proposed plant. 

The cost of the balloon release 
was about $70, according to 
another AEC spokesperson, Sean 
Conley, who said this expenditure 
would probably be shared by both 
Hampshire and Franklin county 
offices of the AEC. 

Speeches, music and a nature 
walk were also part of the rally on 
the Montague Plains, a 1900 acre 
site between Montague Center and 
Turners Falls. 

Melvin Kretzenger, a Montague 
farmer for 13 years, pointed out the 
bad effects on farming he said 
would come from evaporation from 
the two cooling towers of the 
proposed plant. 

Salt would precipitate from the 
steam clouds from the two cooling 
towers for the plant, Kretzenger 
said, which would harm the "pure 
and drinkable" Montague Plains' 
ground water. 

An AEC fact sheet about the 
plant says salt build-up in the 
Montague area could be as much 
as five pounds an acre. 

Addressing sportspersons, 
Kretzenger noted adverse effects 
from the salt on the plains' ground 
water could also harm the fish 
raising operations at the Bitzer 
State Fish Hatchery on Hatcher Rd. 
The hatchery, which raises mostly 
trout, uses 800 gallons of water per 
minute for its operation. 

Juanita Nelson, also a local 
resident, told the audience while 
they "want very much not to have 
nukes" they will also "have to 
stress having much less energy 
than before." 

Pat DeCou and Tex LaMountain, 

participants in the May 1st oc- 
cupation of the Seabrook, New 
Hampshire, nuclear power plant 
construction site, played anti- 
nuclear power songs from an old 
Ford platform truck, which was 
used as a stage for the speakers 
and musicians. 

Two of their songs, "No Nukes 
(Hanging Tree)" and "Karen Silk- 
wood", were recorded this summer 
by Rainbow Snake Music of 
Leverett. Copies of the 45 recording 
were on sale during the rally for $2. 

Daytime vigils were held in 
Amherst Center and outside the 
Unitarian Church in downtown 
Northampton Saturday, Sunday 
and Monday. Signatures from 
passerbys were solicited at these 
vigils for a petition opposing the 
neutron bomb. 

Frances Crowe, who worked at 
an information table in front of the 
Nonotuck Savings Bank in North- 
ampton, said 279 people signed the 
petition Saturday, while 283 others 
signed it the previous week during 
the sidewalk sales in the shopping 
district. Violetta Cody of Amherst, 
said roughly 110 people signed the 
petition "within two hours" in 
Amherst center. 

Cody said Sunday night she 
expects more signatures would be 
collected during Monday's vigil. 
Two documentary movies were 
shown at the Pleasant St. Theater 
in Northampton to benefit the AEC. 
The Last Resort, a 60-minute film 
about the May 1st Seabrook, New 
Hampshire occupation, was shown 
along with a Danish movie, More 
Nuclear Power Stations, Sunday, 
Monday, and Tuesday nights. Both 
films were also presented during 
these three nights in 36 other 
locations across the United States, 
said Charles Light of the AEC.

Members of the Alternative Energy Coalition protest the implementation of the neutron bomb 
Saturday In Northampton. 

A s P° kes P erson Tne Western Massachusetts Electric Company 
(WMECO) said Monday his company does not plan to consider 
demands made by the Alternative Energy Commission (AEC) that 
the company give up its holdings in nuclear power plant sites. 

The AEC Monday asked the company to sell its interests in the 
Montague, Seabrook, New Hampshire and Clinch River, Tennessee 
nuclear power plant sites. WMECO is part of Northeast Utilities. 

Robert L. Klein of the utility's Amherst office, in a telephone 
interview Monday has responded to the AEC in a four-part letter. 

Because the AEC continually opposes private industry, Lein 
said, he is "doubtful" of any possible dialogue between WMECO 
and the AEC. 

"Northeast Utilities has voluntarily agreed to come under 
jurisdiction of the Massachusetts Energy Facilities Siting Council," 
noted Kelin. 

The siting council, organized in 1974, oversees planning and 
construction of major facilities by utilities. The Montague hearings 
earlier this summer were run by the council, while the hearings this 
fall will be chaired by the council and the Nuclear Regulatory 

Klein said that since the AEB will be participating in the up- 
coming hearings, WMECO considers it "inappropriate to discuss the 
issues outside the process." 

The fourth reason Klein said no negogiations would be held is 
because WMECO is responsible for meeting future electricity 
demands, and will not "abdicate its responsibility to any 
organization not responsible for future consequences."

3|c3|eThe Last Remake of Beau 
Geste, starring Marty Feldman, 
Michael York and Ann-Margaret. 

/„ Norman Lear effect: "an affect, 
or process, whereby a show or 
series considered a 'hit', spawns an 
ever increasing number of series 
based loosely on the original. In the 
long run, the number of spinoffs 
increases exponentially. " 

The effect described above is not 
an uncommon one; people who are 
creative and imaginative, when 
faced with a winning enterprise, will 

The last remake of Mel Brooks? 

find some way of continuing that 
winning streak. 

Methods of preserving the rolling 
gravy train are numerous; one that 
has gained prominence of late is the 
Lear effect, also know as the 
cloning effect. 

It started with the simple idea of 
saturation. You hit with the original 
then make Original, part II. Then' 
on television you had spinoffs, and 
now, we have an added twist. 
When actors, once combined in a 
fearsome bond of comaraderie, 


split and go their separate ways, 
each destined to contribute 
something for posterity, we find 
spinoffs that have a common 
tempo, and zaniness, and 
ebullience, instead of similar plots 
and directors. 

Mel Brooks started things rolling 
with a series of hits; Gene Wilder 
took off on his own and produced a 
fair movie or two, and now, the 
impropable has occurred and Marty 
Feldman has cast his strange hat 
into the cinematic ring with The

Last Remake of Beau Geste. 

The film was, I am sorry to say, a 
terrible disappointment to me, as it 
lacked the elements that made 
Brooks' films so wonderful 
Feldman's looks had a lot to do 
with his success in Young 
Frankenstein. As Woody Allen 
parades his enervetic machismo 
before us in order to make us laugh 
Marty Feldman displays his im- 

I probable countenance, and soaks 

' it for all that it is worth. 

There is nothing wrong with this, 
mind you; we see a child portraying 
the young Marty Feldman, with 
eyes as wide as saucers, literally 
bugging out of their sockets. 

While his features accounted for 
a few laughs, Feldman also 
maintained a mystique about him in 
earlier films, such as Young 
Frankenstein andThe Adventuresof 
Sherlock Holmes' Smarter Brother. 
You never knew where he came 
from, what he was doing or why. 
He was shrouded in mystery and 
suspense, his character improbable, 
and one never quite afforded him 
the status of a human being. 

However, here, we see him grow 
up and do things in a rational and 
human way. In a strange sort of 
way, it is dissapointing to see 
behind the cloak of absurdity and 
eerie hilariousness that we once 

These foibles are but a few of the 

and scenes, however. Do not get" 
the mistaken impression that the 
film is a total washout. Feldman 
often intertwines old film clips, or 
sequences in 'sepia' (to produce 
the "silent movie" touch) with the 

However, in a scene that had 
great promise, where Gary Cooper 
(the original Beau Geste) is sitting 
and talking, it appears, to Feldman, 
the dialogue is both flat and witless. 

The film concerns two brothers, 
Beau and Digby Geste, who are 
adopted by a fabulously wealthy 
soldier. To make a long story short, 
Beau steals the family jewels (a 
sapphire for those with other things 
on their mind), and marches off to 
join the French Foreign Legion. 
Digby Geste (Feldman) joins up 
with him, and the two battle 
sadistic pegleg sargeants, Oxford 
educated Arab leaders, a dying 
script and an excellent performance 
by Peter Ustinov. 

It follows the original story until 
the end, where the movie seems 
listless and cumbersome 
Somehow, it never reaches a 
climax; it simply drags on and on 
until, rather abruptly, it stops. 

Ann Margaret, as their new 
mother, is winsome, curvy, and 
actually gives a passable' per 
formance. Henry Gibson and James 
Earl Jones, as the Legion general 

Many Maceda 

many that mar The Last Remake of 
Beau Geste. The flair, charm, total 
absurdity and sexually perverted 
humor of the earlier films is lacking, 
and worst of all, so is the humor. 

The film vacillates between 
period of blatant humor and un- 
characteristic, yet surprisingly 
effective subtle humor. The usual 
litany of gags and jokes based upon 
boobs and the Kama Sutra are 
present. Yet, in the same scene, a 
French Legion general (about to 
experiment with Ann Margaret 
and the Kama Sutra), who always 
appears with heavily rouged 
cheeks appears in the nude with 
heavily rouged cheeks (different 
ones, though;. 

However, too often he lapses 
into periods of total indifference as 
he doesn't really try to engage the 
audience. He relies too much on 
banal sight gags, hackneyed humor 
and unimaginative stunts. 

There are some brilliant effects 

and the Arab leader, respectively, 
are helpful, though not overly 
wonderful. Michael York as the 
dashing, handsome, brave, heroic 
and criminal Beau is put in a very 
strange position. Beau Geste is 
really the main character; but no 
one wants to see Beau or gives a 
damn about the character. They 
came to see Marty Feldman and his 
queer eyes. 

Almost everyone will be 
disappointed by the film, because it 
is not Mel Brooks — it is Marty 
Feldman. Feldman is an unknown 
quantity on his own; you know 
what he can do at the bidding of 
others, but what he can do by 
himself is mother story. 

Feldman nas vast potential his 
T.V. show that was on a number of 
years ago demonstrated that; he

AUGUST 10. 1977 


Who's who, 
not whodunit 


The real Inspector Hound? 


From the onslaught we see the 
appearance of the outsider casting 
fear and intrigue into the lives of a 
small group of people isolated in an 
old English manor. So concludes 
one critic in the play - within-a- 
play that played last week at the 
Mt. Holyoke College Summer 

Tom Stoppard's The Real In- 
spector Hound is more of a Who's 
Who than the whodunit that it 
purports to be. The story is about 
two rival but congenial theatre 
critics who meet each other on 
assignment to review the latest 
thriller. The critics are played by 
Jack Neary and Jeffery Deutsch 
and are by far the most convincing 
characters in the performance. 

But the rest of the cast is no less 
convincing because they are play- 
ing players within a soap opera 
thriller, and their roles necessitate 
their hamming it up. 

The plot opens rather dull — the 
thriller, that is - but becomes 
much more humorous when one of 

the reviewers is suddenly pulled 
into the action. 

His companion pleads with him 
to remain in the audience but to no 
avail and eventually he too is im- 
mersed deep within the story. 

Basically it all revolves around a 
dead body that has been lying 
(quite dead) on stage through the 
entire performance. It is only 
discovered half-way through the 

second act and only identified as 
still another rival theatre critic by 

the conclusion of the r.i av 

» i — 

This is the shortest performance 

of the season for the Mt. Holyoke 

summer stock and perhaps one of 

the easier plays that they've put on. 

It would appear to have been one of 

the most enjoyable performances 

by the group that they dealt with 

and a lot of this fun rubbed off onto 

the audience.

The Vibrators: PURE MANIA- 
Epic (import) - With their last 
single - the ravishing "Baby 
Baby" (see last week's column) - 
the Vibrators established them- 
selves as one of the most com- 
mercial, most musically competent 
and most eclectic of the British 
punk, or new wave, bands. In short, 
one of the best. 

They first came to prominence 
backing Chris Spedding on his 
great "Pogo Dancing" single, then 
appeared with "We Vibrate," 
another great record, under their 
own name. "Baby Baby" was next, 
and we suddenly realized that this

probably will be soon, for it is 

It eliminates nearly everything 
the punks do wrong, and includes 
nearly everything they do right. 
They do lack a sense of humor, but 
they do not take themselves so 
god-almighty-seriously, a common 
fault among similar groups. The 
Vibrators are one of the few punk 
groups with no pretenses of 
supporting political upheaval; they 
sing mostly love songs (with an 
anti-drug ditty thrown in for good 
balance). They know at least four 
chords, almost twice as many as 
most groups in the genre, and they 
can play them slow as well as fast. 
They have an excellent sense of 
pop melody and agreat knack for 
the all-important hook. 

Yet they remain totally 
anonymous. The members are all 
very indistinguished-looking, and 
we are not even told which of the 
four individual photos is of whom. 
Their dress is quite reserved as 
punks go. The chief songwriter, 
"Carnochan," is not even listed as 
being a member of the group, and 
for all I know or care the Vibrators 
could be a corporate plot (a la the 
Monkees) to cash in on the punk 

craze in tngland. One band 
member is listed only by his "last 
name, another only by his first. 
Three of the four are listed as 
vocalists, although none are 
credited as lead singer. The vocais, 
while being technically better than 
those of most punk bands, are also 
quite lacking in distinctive 

There are 15 songs on the record, 
ranging in time from 1:17 to 3:40, 
with most hovering around a 
Ramones-ish 2:00. Most of the 
material is played at a wreckless 
speed, and the space between 
tracks is almost non-existent, giving 
Pure Mania a fantastic breathless 
quality. The production is sparse 
yet clean. 

All told, the Vibrators have a lot 
going for them and not that much 
going against them. Unfortunately, 
they will probably have to beef up 
thoir image somewhat in order to 
break into that front line, but with 
anv luck they will fall short of 
having to "sell out." Bands should 
be allowed to rely on their music 
rather than their looks to succeed; 
who knows, perhaps the Vibrators 
will become the first in that 
crowded scene to break that rule. 
Brilliant three-chord pop. Good 
luck to them. 


Don Ellis And Survival; MUSIC 


Notice how, directly above, the 
words "STAR WARS" in the super 
heavy type grabs your eye to the 
exclusion of all else, trying to make 
you think that it actually has 
something to do with this year's 
box-office biggie? Well, that's 
exactly what they're trying to do 
with this record. And what, 
precisely, does this record have to 
do with Star Wars? Aside from the 
title and two cuts, not a whole hell 
of a lot. 

The first song is, indeed, a 
version of the main theme of Star 
Wars. But did we really need a 
disco version of it? I think not. The 
other song taken from the movie is 
"Princess Leia's Theme," one of 

the recurring themes on the movie 
soundtrack. However, in marked 
contrast to composer John 
William's sweeping romantic style, 
this one is syrupy and over- 
orchestrated. And since Mr. 
Williams was working with the 
London Symphony Orchestra you 
can imagine how overblow Ellis' 
version is. 

The rest of the , album is 
(de)composed of songs of dubious 
merit, each given a cutesy 
astronomical or science-fantasy 
name. "Arcturas" (sic, look it up), 
"Orion's Sword" and the rest are 
basically the same. They all 
sounded to me like the Tijuana 
Brass trying to play the background 
music from The Man from UNCLE, 

If you are: A) a music lover, B) a 
science fiction lover, or C) anyone 
with ears; do yourself a favor and 
don't buy this abomination of the 
wax-presser's art. 


Village People; VILLAGE 
PEOPLE; Casablanca - Village 
People is a debut album from a new 
act and they are very very good I 
Their sound is not much unlike that 
of any other black or R&B group 
(but be careful — this group is 
mostly white!), but there is a dif- 
ference. The difference is in the 
way they perform — you see, they 
do it with feeling. At no point is the 
LP sluggish or sloppy. Their sound 
is tight ond packs not only lots of 
excitement but also fills the listener 
with a keen and burning desire to 
know what will happen next. This 
LP is full of excitement and sur- 
prises. One minute it's soul — 
RErB, the next it boarders on 
straight disco with hard-driving 
rhythms and then it bends into a 
little calypso to keep you off- 


This group has me excited; 
they're a little weird but in this case, 
Vive le diference. I highly 
recommend this LP to anyone who 
needs a "shot in the arm" for a tired 

To look at the cover you'd think 
that Sha Na Na had taken on a new 
name. The band is dressed in '50's 
garb except for one member - he 
wears an Indian chief's headdress. 
There's a Harley Davidson in the 
picture also, but I doubt if it's a very 
good bass player. 

The most important factor is the 
excitement that this group conveys. 
They - unlike many other artists - 
sound as though they are actually 
happy to be playing music/ This, of 
course, makes the listener happy to 
hear the music they're playing.

Slide Hampton And The Trombone 
Choir played to about 1500 people last 
Thursday evening in the Fine Arts Center 
Concert Hall. The show as sponsored by 
Summer Activities 77. 

Hampton, trombones 
thrill FAC audience 

all photos: Randy Glenn 


The Fine Arts Center Concert 
Hall swelled with the sounds of 
irombones last Thursday evening. 
The mood of the music was 
reminiscent of the late fifties and 
the sixties; the man that initiated 
ihe feeling was Slide Hampton. His 
entourage was comprised of seven 
equally talented musicians in- 
cluding four other trombones, a 
bassist, a pianist, and a drummer. 
The mixture was as delightful as it 
was entertaining. 

Slide Hampton was the "Old 
Wizard", a man whose background 
speaks for itself He brought to 
fruition the full melodius 
capabilities of the trombone. From 
the opening tune to the finale he 
enraptured the audience with his 
skill as a trombonist. Not to be sold 
lightly was the skill of his ac- 
companying members who each 
enlivened the crowd when they 
were afforded the opportunity to 

As a matter of fact, it was one of 
ihe troupe members that jarred the 
audience to life Janice Robinson* 
brought the crowd to its feet when 
she stood to solo. It seemed as if 
she were talking to the crowd and 
the trombone were extensions of 
her lips. She coaxed the crowd with 
an old Cannonball Adderly tune, 
and they responded like mice 
following the Pied Piper. 

Then it was time for the magic. 
Slide Hampton did his solo. This 
lime there was no background 
music to distract you; just the Man 
and the audience. When the 
serenade ended the crowd cheered 
and roared as if it attempted to re- 
enact the "Battle of Jericho". 

There was no escaping the spell 
that had been poured on you. 
Cannonball Adderly would have 
been proud of the justice Hampton 
had given one of his pieces. 

Then the pianist, Joe Bonner, 
began to sing a Duke Ellington love 
ballad, and the odor of "amour" 
began to rise and fill the auditorium. 
As he sang, a bit reminiscent of the 
Duke himself, the emotion of the 
song began to fill the audience; a 
young man's arm eased around the 
form of his date as she may have 
leaned a little closer to accept it. 
And those who were alone began 
to lean as if someone were next to 
them, or cast a wondering glance at 
the ceiling. He might have made the 
Duke cry, wherever he was. 

Slide Hampton and his trombone 
choir closed the way they came in, 
"busting through the front door." 
The sounds of the trombones and 
his hard hitting background 
musicians flooded the audience like 
a cascading waterfall. The trom- 
bones set you up and it was the 
drummer, Freddie Waits, and the 
bassist, Larry Ridley, that knocked 
you back into your seat. The 
irombones of Doug Purviance, Bill 
Ohashi, Charles Greenlee, and 
Janice Robinson blended with the 
irombone of Slide Hampton to 
release a satisfied crowd at the end 
of ihe evening. 

I will admit that I am not a real 
lover of jazz. However, the way 
Slide Hampton And The Trombone 
Choir gave it to us last Thursday 
made me change my attitude. I like 
just about anything if I can get in 
the mood for it, but my mood was 
alterated in a manner not soon to 
be forgotten! 

AUGUST 10, 1977 


Amherst is an unusual town 
because for eight months of the 
year it becomes a beehive for 
30,000 young people, who overflow 
the campus and spill into nearby 
towns, capturing the attention of 
local merchants, restauranteurs and 
disco proprietors. 

Nevertheless, one segment of the 
youthful population have been 
ignored and forgotten. That is, until 
Mike Glish, a graduate student at 
UMass, and a few concerned 
parents and town officials started 
the Amherst Youth Center for 
teenagers one year ago. 

As many as 50 kids, 13 to 16 
years old, of the Amherst area meet 
in the converted basement of the 
old brick schoolhouse in North 
Amherst, next door to Watroba's. 
The doors leading down to the two 
large rooms that make up the 
center are open seven days a week. 
They lead friendly atmosphere of 
neatly arranged chairs, rugs and 
ping-pong table. 

The center is more than a 
meeting place, school and coun- 
seling center for these kids. It is a 
supervised place for young people 

Amherst Youth Center 
a place to go for local kids 

to experience and deal with their 
growing pains; it is an alternative to 
the frowned-upon "uptown." 

To fight the obvious boredom of 
being too old to play around the 
house and being too young to 
work, the center's current co- 
ordinator, Arlene De Salvo, has 
packed the summer's weeks full of 
activities that fit the meager 
budget, like bike trips to Cranberry 
Pond, museum tours, and the 
Youth Center League softball team 
that is just starting its season. 

On Sunday, two weeks ago, they 
made a beach trip to Rocky Neck, 
Conn., in a collective effort of 
volunteer parent drivers and the 
town station wagon. Some of the 
28 kids who went saw the ocean for 
the first time, with some ex- 
periencing the severity of the sun 
also, but all agree that it was a great 

too, in this one year, from a place 
for ' nanging out and doing 
nothing" to a bustling activities 

It still has a long way to go, 
however. The town provides the 
building, but it is supplied empty 
and without any budget. And the 
building, although a pleasant 
enough meeting place, is too old 
and flammable to hold dances and 
large functions, and too small to 
accommodate the 1100 teenagers 
of Amherst who might wish to 

Then there is the problem of 
transportation for the kids. A town 
car is available, but only as a last 
resort, and it seats about 10 people. 
Further, the only spending money 
that the center has must be earned 
by children too young to work. 

Pianist Joe Bonner 


Grace Episcopal Church, which 
lent the center space for a dance, 
the Town Manager's Office, which 
directs available funds to the 
center, and the many involved 
parents value the support that the 
kids are getting. 

In the summer the center 
replaces school altogether, while in 
the fall and spring it supplements 
that scant social life. 

As more than just a place for 
recreation, Arlene De Salvo 
considers "informal counseling" to 
be the prime function of the center 
now, but hopes to establish a 
formal guidance program soon. 

Many of the local businesses 
support the center through 
donations, like that given a few 
weeks ago for softball uniforms by 
Amherst Towing, its next door 
neighbor. Others, of course, do not 
appreciate the center's presence. 
Whenever a window is broken or a 
disturbance occurs, the Youth 
Center is usually blamed. 

The center suffers from the 
famous dilemma of the sixties — 
the generation gap. If given the 
chance, a large number of the 
Amherst community would treat 
the town children as aliens and 
criminals, discouraging group 
meetings for fear of possible 
vandalism. Their assumption is that 
one teenager alone is inherently 
bad, and that a group of them is 
inherently dangerous. 

No sentiment could be more 
misguided. Maybe the thought 
springs from a lack of com- 
munication or understanding for 
young people, but an afternoon in 
the center would dispel all ap- 
prehensions. Kids are busy clean- 
ing, while others are planning fund 
raisers like bake sales and car 
washes, and then, of course, ways 
to spend the money. They are all 
available to the neighborhood to do 
odd-jobs and babysitting. 

The Youth Center is the product 
of four years of difficulties and 
numerous failed attempts to 
provide a young peoples' facility in 
Amherst. It was started with funds 
donated by the Jaycees and Odd 
Fellows associations, only after the 
town of Amherst determined in a 
lengthy study that there was "a 
blatant need for a youth counseling 

Not long after, Bill Staton was 
hired as a liaison between the 
school, the center and the com- 
munity outreach center, a job he 
still performs. The diligent effort of 
these two planners, working 64 
hours a week, and the subsequent 
commitment of Arlene De Salvo, 
explain why this center has suc- 
ceeded where others have failed. 

The center is circumventing a 
drug problem for town youths by 
offering something else, possibly 
something more interesting. As an 
alternative, the center has grown, 

The Amherst Youth Center, located next to Watroba's, gives local youngsters a place to fight the 
boredom created by being too old to play around the house and too young to work. 


But there is hope for the center s 
^ m future, if a program can be 
arranged with UMass. 

The center thrives on the oc- 
casional benefits that UMass offers, 
like the bus service and year-round 
low-cost helpers. In the past year 
the center has been able to afford 
one full time work -study position, 
and frequent interns during the 
school year, who are paid in 
University credits only. 

Arlene De Salvo is certain that 
the University holds the trump 
cards that will finally make the 
center a complete success. During 
the summer, the busiest season for 
the Youth Center, while most of the 
University buses sit idle, De Salvo 
hopes to convince UMass to lend 
its buses at cost to the center for 
weekend trips. 

Approaching the University for 
assistance in its specialty 
education, De Salvo hopes to find 
an intern in the Art Education Dept 
who would enjoy setting up an arts 
and crafts center next year. The 
space is readily available, and the 
funds can be managed, she says, if 
there is an interested person 

Among the four trombonists in the band were Janice Robinson ( left) and Slide Hampton himself

SBA, Food and Natural Resources 


Budgets jump for two University schools 

Vice Chancellor Robert L. Woodbury. 

Handicap funds 
to rise threefold 


The Handicapped Student 
Affairs budget will be tripled this 
year with the additional monies 
allocated by the Student affairs 
office, according to acting Vice 
Chancellor for Student Affairs, 
Robert L. Woodbury. 

Woodbury Monday said staff 
help in counseling and student 
services in the admissions and 
transfers offices has also benefited 
from the extra $300,000 allocated to 
his student affairs office. 

Paul R. Appleby, coordinator of 
Handicapped Affairs. Monday night 
said the interpretative and trans- 
portation services in his office will 
be receiving most of the extra 
money. The budget for Hand- 
icapped Affairs is $60,000 for the 
upcoming year; last year it received 

Appleby, who has been coor- 
dinator for two years, said new 
equipment in audio visual aid will be . 
purchased this year. 

About 5,000 handicapped 
students were given free trans- 
portation by Handicapped Affairs 
last yea', of which almost half were 
only temporary injuries, Appleby 

The University will be upgrading 

its overall services to the hand- 
icapped students to meet new 
federal laws this year. 

Appleby said this law requires 
any institution receiving federal 
money to accommodate hand- 
icapped students in facilities and 
academic programs. 

The Community Development 
Center (CDC) will receive extra 
resources for career counseling, 
said Woodbury. Salaries for 
student resident assistants will also 
be equalized. 

Staff help will be added for 
offices in student services, said 

With the additional $300,000 said 
Woodbury, student affairs will be 
building back the staff numbers lost 
through the last three years of tight 

A real crisis is no longer true with 
the allocation, said Woodbury. The 
student affairs area is "better than a 
year ago." 

Cost of living adjustments eat up 
most of the additional money for 
the Department of Public Safety, 
said Woodbury. Two new police 
cruisers, and more staff for stricter 
parking enforcements may also be 
possible under this year's budget. 


The School of Business Ad- 
ministration (SBA) and College of 
Food and Natural Resources are 
receiving most of the faculty 
positions available from additional 
monies in the 1978 budget of 
academic affairs, according to 
Associate Provost Vere C. 

Chappell Monday said most of 
the additional $1.2 million academic 
affairs has in its 78 fiscal year 
budget will be used for both 
temporary and permanent faculty 
positions as well as teaching 
assistants and associates. 

Ross S. Whaley, dean of food 
and natural resources, called the 
additional allocation his college 
received "a relatively small 
amount" compared to the "total 
needs of the college." 

All the additional funds for the 

college, totalling $60,000 Whaley 

said, are earmarked for faculty and 

< teaching associate (graduate 

g> students) payroll. 

I Whaley said the department of 
?. Food Science and Nutrition will get 
two teaching associates in addition 
to the two professors the depart- 
ment hired in the spring for the 
upcoming semester. 

Food Science and Nutrition, 
Whaley said, was down about five 
faculty positions last year, but three 
of the positions, he added, have 
been replaced. 

Hotel, Restaurant and Travel 
Administration is receiving one 
temporary position, Whaley said, 
and also a part time visiting lec- 

University lawyers 
nix tuition waivers 

No athletic tuition waivers will be 
given out to incoming 
Massachusetts athletes this fall, 
according to a decision reached last 
week by UMass attorneys. 

A July 28th vote by the UMass 
Board of Trustees, rescinding a 
prior vote in favor of 120 waivers, 
was held to be valid by UMass 
attorneys after one trustee raised a 
question about how it was passed. 

Robert J. Spiller, chairperson of 
the trustee Committee on Buildings 
and Grounds, said the way the vote 
was taken was inconsistent with 
Robert's Rules of Order, because 
Secretary of Educational Affairs 
Paul Parks asked the June vote be 
reconsidered. According to 
Robert's Rules of Order, only 
someone who voted in favor of the 
waivers could ask the vote be 
reconsidered, and Parks did not 
participate in the June vote. 

Howard White, aide to UMass 
President Robert C. Wood, Monday 
said University attorneys took the 
position that the point of order was 
raised "too late". 

"It would have had to have been 
raised earlier" to be held valid, 
White said. 

At the June meeting, the vote 
was split eight to eight, before 
Wood broke the tie, casting his 

ballot in favor of the waivers. 

The vote to rescind in July 
squeaked by with a 12 to 11 vote. 

Many trustees objected to the 
June vote because the complete 
tuition waiver policy, which will 
include students who perform a 
service to the University, will be 
discussed at the September 
meeting of the board. 

In a recent interview, Chancellor 
Randolph W. Bromery said he 
would not implement the waivers 
even if the attorney's ruled that the 
vote to rescind was out of order, 
unless he received a -com- 
munication from the president to 
go ahead with the policy. 

He said 66 incoming students 
would have received waivers, but 
the money will now have to come 
from the Barber fund for athletic 

Bromery said of the original vote 
that it would be used to implement 
title IX for intercollegiate sports at 
the UMass without cutting down 
on funds for the men's teams. 

Currently, only the football, 
men's basketball, women's 
basketball and women's gym- 
nastics teams are receiving 
scholarship monies with the men's 
teams receiving most the the 

Departments in the Stockbridge 
two year associate degree program 
are receiving a temporary position, 
a part time instructor, and two 
teaching associates for "general 
teaching responsibilities." 

Jack S. Wolf, who begins the 
duties of acting dean at SBA 
September 1, Monday said SBA 
will have five temporary professors 
for this fall semester. 

Woolf said although SBA 
received the additional money after 
the recruiting season for professors 
was over, the school was still able 
to get the professors for the fall 

SBA spread its "tentacles out 
and lined up people," he said, 
before it actually knew it would 
have the extra money. 

Guidelines of the American 
Association of University 
Professors state that professors 
should be recruited "as early as 
possible in the academic year" prior 
to the fall semester. 

Once SBA realized it did have the 
necessary funds for more faculty, 
Wolf said, the people were con- 
tacted again. 

Most of the new professors will 
be at SBA for either a semester or a 
year, Wolf said. "Maybe one or two 
will have long run interests" in 
staying at UMass, Wolf said, who 
added the future here at UMass for 
the professors would depend upon 
the SBA allocations next year. 
About $7,000, said Wolf, will be 
used for firing more graduate 
students af-teaching assistants. 

The areas in SBA to receive 
additional faculty, Wolf said, in- 

clude accounting, marketing, 
business law and urban and 
regional management. 

The Rhetoric Department, 
Chappell said, is also receiving 
some of the additional money in the 
academic area Chappell noted, 
however, that the provost's office 
"was determined to wipe out the 
student backlog (in rhetoric) even 
at the expense" of other programs 
in the academic area. 

The rhetoric program, a two 
semester University requirement for 
undergraduates, has been unable to 
accommodate all the un- 
derclassmen in recent years. As a 
result, many students have been 
unable to fulfill their rhetoric 
requirements until their junior or 
senior year. 

Chappell said the entire backlog 
of upperclassmen in the rhetoric 
program will be "wiped out" this 
fall. After this semester, he said, 
only freshmen should be enrolled in 
the program. 

The provost's office, Chappell 
said, has already allocated enough 
money to wipe out the backlog in 
the rhetoric program. 

Chappell said equity raises for 
faculty will also be possible with the 
additional money. Most of the>e 
raise, he said, will be for women 
faculty under the Title IX law, 
which prohibits discrimination 
because of race, sex and age. 

More library acquisitions will be 
made this year, said Chappell, as 
well as purchases of "badly 
needed" services and equipment in 
the science and engineering 

Lt Gov. tours campus; 
says reorg plan will wait 


Lt. Gov. Thomas P. O'Neill III 
yesterday said the governor's 
office will probably wait until a 
new UMass president is ap- 
pointed before unveiling the 
latest proposals for the 
reorganization of the state's 
public higher education system. 

O'Neill said the new plans will 
allow the state's public higher 
education system to be "as well 
managed as possible." 

O'Neill yesterday morning 
answered questions concerning 
the state's public higher 
education system, possible 
candidates for UMass 
president, energy conservation 
and state employees' problems 
during a two-hour visit on the 
UMass campus. 

O'Neill, son of Speaker of the 
U.S. House of Representatives 
"Tip" O'Neill, rode the 8:34 
inbound Belchertown Rd. bus 
to Stockbridge Rd., and then 
toured the Solar Habitat I, a 
solar heated home, on Orchard 
Hill before talking with state 
employees at the coffee shop in 
the Worcester Dining Com- 

The new plans for 
reorganization of the state's 
public higher education system 
will be the third attempt since

The present board consists of 
trustee representatives from 
UMass, other state universities, 
colleges and community 

At one time, Dukakis 
proposed a "superboard" of 
trustees under the direction of 
Secretary of Educational Affairs 
Paul Parks, while Senate 
President Kevin Harrington 
backed a plan in which UMass 
President Robert C. Wood 
would head a "superboard." 

Wood this summer an- 
nounced his resignation as 
UMass president effective 
January, 1978. The UMass 
Board of Trustees are currently 
organizing a search committee, 
consisting of trustees, faculty, 
students, and one "at large"

member not associated with 
the University, to identify a new 

O'Neill yesterday said he has 
"no idea" who will succeed 
Wood as president. 

The governor's office, O'Neill 
said, smiling "wouldn't want to 
pressure Wood." 

When asked if Harrington 
would make a good president, 
O'Neill said Harrington would 
put his "credibility" on the line 
as a candidate for the UMass 
president's office, but, O'Neill 
added, he's "not so sure" 
Harrington will apply. 

Harrington is "one of the 
brightest men I've ever met," 
said O'Neill, who was a state 
representative in the 1973-74

Greetings from beyond 



Greetings from beyond the pale 
of the university. If parts of my last 
column were somewhat mystifying, 
it was because I was bit on the ass 
by a vicious rabid dog as I slept on a 
couch that was on its way to 
furniture store in Holyoke for repair, 
awaiting removal in a remote 
hallway in the Student Union- 
Campus Center Complex (SUCC- 
plex) that stank like a henhouse. 

Rabies are contagious, and 
before I was impaled in the gut a 
dozen times with a monster 
hypodermic needle, I wrote my 
column while foaming at the 
mouth. The basis for the column 
was the Golden Rule and the 
philosophy of an eye for an eye and 
a tooth for a tooth. The old homily 
that two wrongs don't make a right 
did not influence me at all. 

The infected animal is still at 
large and dare not set foot on 
campus because I know that if I do, 
I'm going to get it again, but this 
time even worse. 

Unnatural Acts 

And why the hell does someone 
who wants to book an act into the 
Bluewall have to deal with Natural 
Acts, a booking agency 90 miles 
away in Boston? Why does SAGA 
Food Services have the authority to 
contract out the Bluewall. Is it true 
that at SAGA's G.E.R.M. con- 

ference the keynote speaker was 
the former production manager at 
the Bon Vivant soup company in 
Newark, New Jersey? 

Dear conferees 

Dear conterees: get the hell out 
of here. The hotel rooms you now 
occupy are slated for pulverization 
and purification in UMass' new 
wastewater treatment plant, the 
one that looks like the Hampshire 
College library. To the Sons of 
Demolay, you bunch of junior 
Freemasons, if you're still here 
when this newspaper hits the 
SUCCplex let me treat you to 
Ambrose Bierce's definition of 
Freemasons from his "Devil's 

"Freemasons: an order with 
secret rites, grotesque ceremonies 
and fantastic costumes, which, 
originating in the reign of Charles II, 
among working artisans of London, 
has been joined successively by the 
dead of past centuries in unbroken 
retrogression until it embraces all 
the generations of man on the 
hither side of Adam and is 
drumming up distinguished recruits 
among the pre-creational 
inhabitants of Chaos and the 
Formless Void. The order was 
founded at different times by 
Charlemagne, Julius Caesar, Cyrus, 
Solomon, Zoroaster, Confucius, 
Thothmes, and Buddha. Its em- 


blems and symbols have been 
found in the catacombs of Paris 
and Rome, on the stones of the 
Parthenon and the Chinese Great 
Wall, among the temples of Karnak 
and Palmyra and in the Egyptian 
pyraminds — always by a 

Randolph Bromery should not be 
president of the University. If the 
present chancellor is elected to the 
presidency by the board of trustees, 
I predict he will be felled by the 
Peter Principal. The Peter Principle 
states that one will rise in the 
hierarchy of a beaurocracv until 
that person reaches her-his level 
of incompetence upon which the 
individual will flounder and-or sink. 
Former Vice Chancellor Robert 
Gage was a victim of the Peter 
Principle. Chancellor Bromery 
seems to lack the essential 
bloodlust and necessary element of 
bullshit that the current president, 
Robert Wood, has an abundancy 
of. But then again, if he can handle 
it, I don't see how he can do 
anything but help the Amherst 

When you see a group of state 
and local police standing in a group, 
how can you tell from a distance 
which ones are not staties? An- 
swer: local police forces don't 
discriminate against fat fuckers and 
midgets. The staties do. 

No place like hom 


Throughout most of our lives we 
have been exposed to the struggle 
of various peoples to find a place of 
their own in a hostile world. The 
process of establishing a homeland 
for the Jews, for example, has 
extended throughout the century 
and continues even today. 

Similarly, the search on the part 
of the Palestinians for a homeland 
has become a topic of wqrld 
concern, if only because of the 
virulence with which the Palestinian 
people pursue their goal. 

But there are clearly groups in 
the world today who are equally in 
need of a homeland, a place of 
mutual support and a haven from 
the persecution of the un- 
sympathetic majority. We have a 
responsibility, as members of 
humankind, to become sensitive to 
less traditional minorities, groups 
of people who are only now 
becoming aware of the need to 
develop a common heritage and 

For example, what is to become 
of the Republican Party? Surely, we 
ought to take upon ourselves the 
burden of establishing a homeland 
for the Republicans. It becomes 
increasingly clear that without our 
help the Republicans will soon 
cease to exist as a political force in 
America. Now, that is not 
necessarily a bad thing in the 
opinion of many people (notably 
vicious Democrats), but common 
courtesy dictates that we find some 
place for the Republicans to die a 
dignified death, in the arms of their 

Certain possibilities come to 
mind immediately. Why not fence 
off a piece of Nebraska and fill it 
with split-level ranch houses and 
station wagons? To please the 
state's rights faction of the party 
we will put administration of the 
area under the Nebraska state 
legislature, and to satisfy the fiscal 
conservatives we will eliminate 
taxes within the area. Of course, 
this will also require eliminating 
schools, health and safety in- 
spections, and oolice and fire 
protection, but at least we will be 
certain that not one cent of the 
taxpayer's money is being spent on 
frivolous government projects. 

Of course, the Republican Party 
is not the only American institution 
that has fallen on hard times in 
recent years. America's cities must 
certainly be ranked among the 
worst victims of decay in these 
times. Urban dwellers, after having 

enjoyed many years at the apex of 
American society, are clearly 
doomed to advanced senility and 
the loss of a sense of purpose as 
time goes on. 

For the urban dwellers of 
America I suggest we create 
another homeland. The area 
stretching from Boston to 
Washington, D.C. can be roped off, 
and what little greenery remains 
can be paved over. With the ad- 
dition of some basketball hoops 
and a little chain-link fencing, urban 
Americans ought to feel right at 
home for the remainder of their 
lives. Of course, the hope is that 
this area will diminish in size as the 
number of those willing to live in 
such conditions decreases, but, 
given the perverse history of this 
nation, a Florida wetlands 
developer will move in within two 
months and start to sell con- 
dominiums (after selling the 
Brooklyn Bridge to the un- 
suspecting urbanites from Los 

There is no end to the number of 
groups who have a legitimate need 
for a homeland. Americans of every 
description wander the earth today, 
isolated, cut off from their own 
kind. What of a homeland for the 
skilled craftsperson? Or the General 
Practitioner who makes housecalls? 
Or even a homeland for college 
students? (which would require 
plenty of matches, cable television, 
and good headphones). 

The problem with establishing 
homelands for these groups is that 
the situation might get out of hand. 
Eventually, every American will find 
some group, persecuted and 
unloved, of which to become a 
part. People will lose interest in 
their jobs and their families and 
simply brood about their per- 
secution. Finally, the bottom will 
fall out of the economy and the 
whole country will come to a 
screeching halt, right in the middle 
of the baseball season. 

But then, at least we would all be 
doing the same thing for a change. 

Enrollment up this fall 

Classes will begin Thursday, 
September 1, at the Amherst 
campus for 23,000 students — 
about 1500 more than last year. 

Of that total, about 18,000 will be 
undergraduates and the remainder 
will be in masters degree and 
doctoral programs. Included in the 
undergraduate total will be the 
largest freshman class in the history 
of the University, almost 4100. 

While dormitory occupancy rates 
will be high, a University 
spokesperson says no triples will be 
necessary this semester as they 
were two years ago when a large 
freshman class was admitted. 

If any problems do occur, the 
Housing Office in Whitmore will be 
open extra hours for the first few 
days of school. 

Full time student enrollment will 
hold the line at 23,000, said 
Chancellor Randolph W. Bromery, 
because the institution cannot meet 
further increases with its present 
budget of $72.5 million. 

In addition to the new budget 
almost $18 million is available to 
students this year for financial aid 
according to University officials. 
The money is in the form of federal 
guaranteed loans, grants, and 
campus work— study programs. 
There is an additional million dollars 
available in scholarship money. 

The University Admissions Office 
estimates that the total cast for a 
student living on the Amherst 
campus is oyer_ $3,000. Tuition 
alone is $231 a semester. 

University researchers will also 
be benefiting from over $14 million 
in non-state funds to be used for 
the support of research, education 
and public service programs this 
year according to the Grants and 
Contracts Office at UMass. 

Grants and contracts brought in 
a total of over $12.6 million in non- 
state budget funds for UMass in the 
last fiscal year which ended June 
mm**** ' ■ ' ■ ' ■ ' ■ ■ . ■■■ ■ ■■■ 

According to the Office of Grant 
and Contract Administration, this 
total includes a number of non- 
research projects. Most of it is for 
research and the figure is the 
recognized way of measuring an 
institution's research strength. The 
non-research projects include such 
awards as fellowships, traineeships 
and educational contracts. 

The majority of the outside 
funding comes from the federal 
government, from such agencies as 
the National Science Foundation, 
the National Institutes of Health 
and Mental Health and the 
Department of Health, Education 
and Welfare. Funding also comes 

from private foundations, state 
agencies, Massachusetts com- 
munities, industry and several other 

Of the over $12.6 million total, 
$10.5 million is direct costs and $2.1 
million is indirect costs. The latter 
amount goes to the University for 

In total amount of outside 
support the Department of Physics 
and Astronomy has led all other 
departments in recent years, 
bringing in over $1 million two years 
in a row. Other departments whose 
totals in recent years have been 
near or over the half-million mark

Postcards Return 

People from as far away as Rock- 
port have returned the postcards 
attached to balloons released 
August 7 by anti nuclear power 
activists in Montague, according to 
Gib Metcalf, an Alternative Energy 
Coalition (AEC) spokesperson. 

AEC sponsored a balloon release 
from the proposed site of a nuclear 
power plant on Montague Plains, 
15 miles north of Amherst. The 
balloons, said AEC, would show 
how far radiation fallout from a 
nuclear power plant could travel by 
wind. Attached to the balloons 
were postcards addressed to the 
Greenfield office of AEC so that the 
group could see how far the 
balloons travelled. 

Metcalf said one postcard was 
returned by people in Rockport, 
town on Cape Ann in Eastern 
Massachusetts. Other balloons, he 
said, were recovered in the Dracutt 
and Belvedere section of Lowell, 
two communities in the Merrimac 
Valley, and Townsend Harbor and 
Fort Devens Ip central 

Metcalf noted the postcard 
returned from Rockport, about 120 
miles east of Montague, said the 
balloon was found at 6 p.m. August 
7, four and a half hours after it was 
released in Montague. 

The results of the balloon re.ease, 
said Metcalf, will be released to the 
media to "dramatize the spread of 
radiation." A dozen postcards had 
been received by AEC Monday. 

Almost 1700 signatures were 
collected by AEC for a petition 
opposing the neutron bomb. The 
signatures were solicited in Nor- 
thampton and Amherst during the 
August 6 to 9 commemoration of 
the Hiroshima Nagasaki World War 
II nuclear bomhi"^ 

Daan Saarch 

A search committee consisting 
of faculty, students and a member 
of the business sector has been 
organized to identify a new dean for 
ihe School of Business Ad- 
ministration, (SB A) according to 
associate Provost David c. 

Another search committee is 
being formed to replace the former 
chairperson of Food Science and 
Nutrition, Frederick J. Francis. 

SB A Dean George S.Odiorne last 
March announced his resignation 
effective September 1 with a 
statement criticizing reallocation of 
faculty positions on cmpus. 

Jack S. Wolf, currently the 
associate dean at SB A, will serve as 
interim dean beginning September 
1. Wolf Monday night said he will 
wait to see how the interim post is 
before he decides whether or not to 
apply for the permanent position. 

Dean Ross R. Whaley Monday 
night said a search committee is 
now being formed to fill the 
chairperson's seat in the depart- 
ment of Food Science and 

Kirby M. Hayes has been ap- 
pointed to serve as interim 
department chairperson. 
New Cop Cars 

The four new police cruisers 
purchased for the Department of 
Public Safety is part of a 
"replacement cycle", according to 
Associate Director for Ad- 
ministrative Services, Gerald T. 

O'Neil Monday said the 
department tries to replace half of 
the fleet over a course of two years. 
There are now six cruisers in the 

Chief Robert G. Joyce last week 
said a UMass cruiser averages 
50,000 miles each year, and is 
usually sold after two years. « 

The cruisers, which cost about 
$6,000 a piece, include heavy duty 
seats and features in the tran- 
smission which allow them to 
operate seven days a week, 24 
hours a day, said O'Neil. 

Collins Office Hours 

The Student Government 
Association (SGA) is now spon- 
soring campus office hours for 
state representative James G. 
Collins, (D-Amherst) said SGA co- 
President Jon A. Hite. Collins was 
SGA president in 1968. 

Collins will hold the hours in the 
Campus Center on the first 
Saturday of every month, Hite said. 
The SGA will not have to pay rent 

for space in the Campus center, 
said Hite. 

The idea for sponsoring the 
office hours for the state rep., said 
Hite, came when he was speaker of 
the student senate in 1975. The idea 
resurface this month when collins 
held hours on the 8th floor of the 
Campus Center. 

Hite said the SGA would sponsor 
campus office hours for state Sen. 
John W. Olver, (D-Amherst) if he 
approached the SGA. 

Olver was unavailable for 
comment Monday night, when he 
was in Boston during session for 
the senate. 

New Grocery Store 

Another supermarket is planned 
for the area. 

An A & P Supermarket, the first 
nationwide supermarket chain, will 
break ground this fall for a shop- 
ping center on University Drive. 

The Amherst building inspector, 
Chester Penza, must still review the 
final drawings of the plaza, which 
will also include some smaller 

Stop and Shop, a regional 
supermarket chain, and Finast, part 
of the regional First National chain, 
already operate stores in plazas 
alonq Rt. 9 in Hadley. 

Football Training Opens 

The UMass Minutemen rootoall 
team today opens its pre-season 
iraining camp for 75 candidates. 
* Co-captains for Coach Dick 
MacPherson's seventh year are 
John Gladchuk from Amherst, and 
Peter McCarty of Bangor, Maine. 

Twenty four other varsity let- 
termen are returning this season, 
which includes the first UMass 
encounter with the West Point 
Academy, Sept. 10. 

The first UMass home game is 
against the University of Maine, 
Sept. 17. 

Youngstown State from Ohio is 
another new opponent for UMass 
this season, appearing in Alumni 
Stadium October 1. 

MacPherson has coached his 
learns to three Yankee Conference 
championships and an overall 
record of 37 wins, 24 losses, and 
one tie.

We who have been, by fate, 
forced to grow in the undramatic 
decade of the seventies tend to 
look upon the sixties with con- 
siderable awe and envy. There is a 
glut of writing and documentary on 
the market. The sixties have been 
put under the social studies 
microscope, performed on stage 
and screen, pinned into countless 
photographic journals, and written 
in novel and poem. We in the 
seventies join Hubert Humphrey on 
the balcony of the Hilton Hotel in 
Chicago and gaze down on the 
bizarre violence, the psychedelic 
visionaries, the carnival clowns and 
entepreneurs as if, in distant safety, 
we were looking at another time. 
We are taken with the quaint, 
harmless stories of the era. 

The reality of the sixties, 
however, was not so quaint and 
harmless. It was a bloody time 
which began with Jeffersonian 
dreams and ended with the reign of 
a tyrant. It was a time which began 
with hope and crumbled in fear. 

Kennedy's Children is a political 
play about the sixties. Like the 
sixties it contains a minimum of 
movement and a maximum of 
dialogue. The characters are not 
real people. They are stereotypes 
who chased and almost caught a 
dream long ago, but now they 
stand alone without motive or 
purpose. They have spent their 
entire lives chasing a feature story 
about themselves in Life magazine. 

There are six characters and they 
meet in a bar in New York City. 
There they speak their dreams and 
recollect their own lives against the 
images of the sixties and we are 


Kennedy's Children 
right out of the '60's 

AUGUST 17, 1977 


reminded of the Fitzgerald adage, 
there are no second acts in 
American lives. 

The actors do not speak to each 
other and only pay slight attention 
to the play when they are not in- 
volved, true to barroom form. And 
as the play goes on they all get 
convincingly innebriated. 

There is Sparger, played by 
Apollo Dukakis, a worn Greenwich 
Village fag who has played in every 
off-beat and beat-off theatrical 
happening the village had to offer. 
Like all the other characters he is 
disgustedly lonely and in need of 
life. Dukakis delivers a superb 
performance. In his drunken reverie 
of Bohemian pastimes, he brings 
back the eccentricities and 
disguises with delightful absurd 

Mallory Jones plays Carla, a still 
aspiring sex goddess with no 
qualms about her desires. 
Provocatively dressed, she delivers 
homage to the innocent sexuality of 
Marilyn Monroe and has cloned 
herself to fill the void Norma Jean 
left behind. Jones' performance is 
wonderfully shallow, as it should 
be. She conveys a moment of 
victory to the audience which she 
does not even herself realize when 
she speaks of vomitting on a 
seducing producer. 

Like Carla searching for a 
heroine, there is Wanda, played by 
Maggie Abeckerly, whose life has 
been lost in an abyss since the 
weekend of November 22, 1963. 
Dressed like the clerk she was when 
it happened, Abeckerly plays the 
prissy Ladies Home Journal rosary 
beads type only too well. What she 
has to say is so worthless and 

melancholy she becomes that 
barroom type that one totally 

v Of course there is the burnt out 
revolutionary, Rona. Played by 
Lennie Weinstein, Rona took part in 
every march from Selma to the 
Pentagon. When the blacks took 
over the Civil Rights crusade, she 
had Vietnam and after Vietnam, 
Consciousness III (though never 
mentioned by name). Weinstein's 
performance is the bitter emotional 
thread to the play. Though 
Weinstein occasionally slips into a 
Long Island accent — the character 
is from California — her delivery is 
sharp and effective. 

The best performance in the play 
is given by Douglas Ball, a young 
New York actor who plays mark, a 
shy midwestern boy who was 
mentally devastated in Vietnam. 
Ball's sincerity as he plays the 
veteran caught on an older 
American Dream is superb. He is 
helped as his lines are the most 
unpredictable lines of the play and 
therefore his character is the most 

The direction by Olympia 
Dukakis of the Williamstown 
Theater is expectedly superb. The 
set design is professional, the 
costumes are real and the lighting 
suffers from only occasional 

Kennedy's Children is a good 
play. It is entertaining as well as 
engulfing and distrubing. it should 
be seen while it is in the valley. The 
play, one of three in the Com- 
monwealth Stage series, runs 
through Sunday at the Hand 
Theatre in the UMass Fine Arts 

A warped outlook on life 


Jules Feiffer has been a car- 
toonist for the Village Voice for 
nearly 20 years, in which time he 
has been a prime influence on many 
young satiric cartoonists, most 
notably Garry Trudeau, of 
Doonesbury fame. 

Feiffer's style is to present one or 
two very realistic characters per 
strip in conversation; as the strip 
unfolds the wry ironic truth usually 
unfolds along with it. Feiffer's 
people seem normal enough at first, 
but after following them for awhile 
we see them as they really are: 
typical New York City neurotics. 

Feiffer 'a People, the play 

presented last week at the Mt. 
Holyoke College Summer Theatre, 
allowed those not familiar with 
Feiffer's work to finally take the in- 
depth look necessary to see these 
nuts for what they are. By bringing 
his strips to life — often word-for 
word from the pages of the Voice. 
sometimes elaborated upon 
somewhat — in a series of short, 
fast-paced vignettes, we are 
provided with a view of Feiffer's on-

target look at the typical middle- 
class urbane urbanite's warped 
perspective on life, and although 
the realistic nature of these 
characters may lead us to some 
serious insights about ourselves, 
the show was nevertheless con- 
sistently funny and delightful. 

The beauty of this type of 
presentation is that if we miss one 
skit or if one somehow sours on us 
there will be another one along in a 
minute or so to put us back on the 
right track. 

It takes some skillful acting to 
bring off the utter believability of 
Feiffer's Voice material, and for- 
tunately the Mt. Holyoke company 
had the necessary talent. The six 
actors (four male, two female) each 

stepped into the cartoonists most 
commonly used characters, and all 
were excellent. Jeffrey Deutsch, as 
Feiffer's rube, was particularly 
outstanding, and in fact quite 
resembels one of the cartoonist's 
sparse line figures. 

The lighting and setting, 
designed by Scott Heinemann, and 
Elaine Borrelli's costumes, were all 
extremely effecive in the context of 
this production, each maintaining a 
scant-but-functional quality. 

My only complaint with the 
whole deal, in fact, was that its 
honesty was so godalmighty 
frightening: if I really am the 
budding New Yorker that I wish to 
be, am I in turn as neurotic as 
Feiffer's people are? 



Everyone has their favorite 
detective, culled from a short story 
or a novel, whose grandiose talents 
and impossible mental feats 
distinguish him or her from the 
millions of other detectives of that 
particular genre. 

But a detective is blase compared 
to the glamour and excitement of a 
spy. Most kids dream of becoming 
spies, hiding behind buildings, 
microfilming secret documents, 
using cigarette lighters which in 
actuality are combination gun, 
radio, radar knife and survival kit. 

Covert operations titillate 
even/ones' interest in the\eycQtic/ 
and dangerous, and if asked 
describe a spy, most persons wiU 
conjure up the mental image of one 
man: James Bond. 

Well, for those who have 
enough of this indefatiga 
continental spy for the f$$r> 
Secret Service (M.1.5), 
back, in The Spy Who Lo 

Bond's newest is nothing 
Bond films follow the same p li 
and contain the sa 
remarkably similar, 9&flftt 
devices and fights. However* Be h 
one is seen anew, as an 
faith," as we vicariously thri 
life of a super spy. 

The newest in the long ^. 7 
thrillers concerns a madman who 
seeks to destroy the world and 
create his own empire — under 
water. So far, the plot resembles 
one or two old Bond films. To 
accomplish his ends, the crook 
hijacks three nuclear- subs: one 
Russian, one American, and one 

Bond's newest 
is nothing new 


A new era of Anglo-Soviet 
relations dawns as Bond is teamed 
with Russian spy Triple-X. 
Together, they set out to stop the 
megalomaniacal deep sea diver.

Options that rise

cavernous hatches and hallways; 
and as usual, beautiful women. 

Further, the gadgets are 
stupendous, for each new Bond 
film serves to introduce us to 
another device that saves his life 

and is us«d tn riisnatch an enemy or 
two, three, or four. 

In the older, and better, films the 
devices were used sparingly, and 
saved for the best moments. They 
were merely ancillary props to help 
the master. Unfortunately, in this 
film, the gadgets a,e in 
overabundance. The director has 
opted for a combination of Bond 
and Flint (with an 81 device 
cigarette lighter). The real 
showstopper is another of won- 
derful Q's inventions; a car that • 
doubles as a submarine. 

Th% Spy Who Loved Me also

films, with the Bond theme as usual

film's greatest drawback is

loped Bond's character; he 

always the center of attention. 

dhHBut here the limelight is shared, if 
ej£vi6t captured, by silly gimmicks and 
Absurd plots. The old Bond films 
had plots based on remote 
possibility — planes crash while 
carrying atomic bombs, etc. 

The Spy Who Loved Me is, as are 
all Bond films, pure fun. Viewers 
must let themselves slip away into 
the characteristic continental 
dream world of a suave, dangerous 
super spy.

VA cautions on 
advance monies 

The Veterans Administration 
cautions Gl Bill students that 
advance payment of educational 
allowances, which can amount to 
as much as two month's benefits at 
the start of a school term, are just 
that — an advance on future 

If a student requests advance 
payment, and the school agrees to 
process it, the normal interval until 
the first recurring monthly VA 
check is received will be 80-85 days. 

For example, if a veteran accepts 
advance payment upon registering 
Sept. 12, it will represent 
allowances for classroom at- 
tendance during September and 
October. No additional benefits will 
be paid until Dec. 1, covering class 
attendance for November. Sub- 
sequent checks will follow each 
additional month of enrollment. 

Anticipated financial 
requirements during the first three 
months of the new school term 
should be considered now, the VA 

Additional VA money help is 
available to eligible Gl Bill students. 
Education loans, which provide up 
to $1,500 per academic year, may 
be granted to students needing 
assistance beyond regular VA 
allowances. In some cases, ap- 
plications may be filed for a VA loan 
before classes begin. School 
financial aid officers can provide 
complete information. 

Participation in VA's work-study 
program is another source of 
financial assistance. Eligible 
students can be advanced $250 
toward a maximum $625 that can 

be earned in work-study projects 
during a school semester. 

Complete information on all 
educational assistance programs 
can be obtained from the veterans 
representative on campus.

Utility aid possible 
for needy families 

The Hampshire Community 
Action Commission has entered 
into negotiations with local fuel and 
utility companies to arrange cash 
settlements for low income families 
who are unable to meet large upaid 
fuel and utility bills. 

The Special* Crisis Intervention 
Program of the Community Ser- 
vices Administration has granted 
the commission $112,640 to be paid 
to utility companies on behalf of 
low income families and individuals 
unable to catch up with their utility 
costs because of last winters ex- 
treme cold. 

Project Director Neil Cronin said 
"This grant from the Federal 
Government is the largest crisis 
intervention grant our agency has 
ever received. Yet we know that 

there are still more people in need 
of this service than we will be able 
to serve with this money. As com- 
munity advocates for the poor, we 
cannot choose to help family A at 
the expense of family B. Instead we 
are hoping that the utility com- 
panies will realize that this 
government subsidy is as much a 
benefit to their stock holders as it is 
to those people facing shut-offs. 
We expect these companies to 
reduce some of their profit margin 
and accept a slightly decrease 
payment as full payment. This way 
we hope to be able to serve more 

To apply for the program, the 
commission asks people to go to 
one of the following locations: 
Amherst Survival Center, next to 
Watroba's from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
